Elderberry and TED
Folks, does anybody use elderberry syrup as a supplement to strengthen the immune system? Anything to share about it?
As a reward for this boring question, I can share that I watched my very first TED talk yesterday. I watched it without sound, and that was really nice. I discovered that the biggest predictor of longevity is the quantity of your daily interactions with people who are non-essential to your life (so not family members, not friends). The second biggest predictor is the existence of profound relationships in your life. The next predictors are, of course, not smoking and not drinking. So basically it’s all about emotional health and well-being. The predictors that are not related to the emotional health (getting flu vaccines and air quality) rank much lower in importance.
