Are Fasting & Golf The Fountain of Youth Combo We All Need?

Professional golfer Phil Mickelson recently won the P.G.A. Championship at 50-years old, reportedly making him the oldest winner of a major golf tournament. I by no means consider 50 to be old, but in the world of professional sports 50 is apparently "old." Mickelson beat players half his age, so, of course, everyone wants to know: what is his secret?

When it comes to longevity, quality years are what really count

Every year or so, it seems that popular culture updates the idea of the “new 40” to reflect our increasing longevity. For example, I remember when “50 is the new 40” was being touted.
