    Watch out for unproven anti-aging treatments
    U.S. News & World Report    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
    The anti-aging industry is booming. Twenty years ago, there was no such thing as an "anti-aging" or "longevity" clinic. Today, many major cities house dozens. Step inside one, and you'll likely encounter an assortment of remedies that promise youthful entry into the triple digits. There's just one wrinkle. Although often lucrative for physicians, evidence suggests that many of the treatments anti-aging doctors tout don't actually work — and some may be downright dangerous. More

    The Vancouver Sun    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
    There is nothing like a close-up mirror to cause a woman in her prime to feel the sting of aging. One glance dispels any fantasy that she looks as young as she feels. Ouch. Now, the sting of a bee can take the bite out of that unwelcome reality. A new beauty product just being commercially launched in North America uses bee venom as an alternative to Botox. The Vancouver Island company in Canada launching the product says bee venom can work wonders on those age-defining lines. But unlike Botox, bee venom cream doesn't paralyze facial muscles. More
