An excess bout of Androgens, like adrenaline, has been 
shown to impair the immune system.
   Soon after Salmon spawn, they die -- FROM INFECTIONS.
   This illustrates one of life`s great paradoxes:

         What's good for the host is even
         better for the parasite.

   "Health" (i.e. activity) must be moderated 
to achieve greater longevity.

Caloric Restriction -- NOT SKINNINESS -- is the only
known method of achieving longevity -- IN ALL LIFE FORMS.
But, Caloric Restriction is also "Health" restriction.

        THUS: Too little, OR TOO MUCH, health causes death.

"Just Enough Health" causes the greatest life span.
