I do wonder if these protiens will do the same thing in humans that they have shown to do in worms and mice. IF this is true we now have a anti-aging drug.
Learning and staying in shape key to longer lifespan, study finds. People who are overweight cut their life expectancy by two months for every extra kilogram of weight they carry, research suggests. A major study has also found that education leads to a longer life, with almost a year added for each year spent studying beyond school. Source 8c.
I am always looking to learn a lot more as I get older I still am trying to learn more. I have a lot of knowledge under my belt now some of it is probably useless but it is still nice to have.
It's mathematically impossible to beat aging, scientists say. Current understanding of the evolution of aging leaves open the possibility that aging could be stopped if only science could figure out a way to make selection between organisms perfect. However, the solution isn't that simple, researchers have found. Source 1u.
Nothing in life has ever been simple but if they can figure this complex equation out then think of the possibilities that would be open to mankind. The rich will be always be the first to get this technology and then the important while the poor and down trodden will be walked upon and those in power will retain more and more power at the cost and lives of the poor and middle class.
Scientists reverse aging-associated skin wrinkles and hair loss in a mouse model. Researchers have reversed wrinkled skin and hair loss, hallmarks of aging, in a mouse model. When a mutation leading to mitochondrial dysfunction is induced, the mouse develops wrinkled skin and extensive, visible hair loss in a matter of weeks. When the mitochondrial function is restored by turning off the gene responsible for mitochondrial dysfunction, the mouse returns to smooth skin and thick fur, indistinguishable from a healthy mouse of the same age.
