Human genes ‘continue to function after we die’

Post Pic
Cells in the body continue to function for a period after death, new Spanish research claims, with some genes even becoming more active when an individual shuffles off this mortal coil. Scientists hope that this new discovery will help forensic scientists more accurately pinpoint the time of a person’s death. An international team examined 36 different types of tissue from 540 corpses to come to... 

Scientists find way to make old human cells young again

Post Pic
Scientists have discovered how to make old human cells young again through rejuvenation. It’s an exciting discovery that could change the way humans age. Researchers at the University of Exeter and University of Brighton found they could rejuvenate senescent cells, cells that had stopped their natural growth cycle, causing them to start to divide again. The experiment found they not only look younger,... 

Humans will NEVER be Immortal, study says

Post Pic
Aging and cancer are two harsh but inescapable realities of life as a multicellular organism and while humanity can strive to treat one or the other, eventual death is mathematically guaranteed, according to a new study. A pair of researchers from the University of Arizona have developed the first general model of the interaction between intercellular competition, aging and the onset and development... 

Hydra may hold answers to eternal life

Post Pic
Hydras, simple fresh-water animals, have the ability to live forever if kept in ideal conditions, a recent study shows. The organisms are made mostly of stem cells that have the ability to continually divide, thus constantly renewing the body. “The differentiated cells of the tentacles and the foot are constantly being pushed off the body and replaced with new cells migrating from the body column,”... 

Some Earth Creatures Already Live Eternal Life

Post Pic
Hydra is a genus of small, simple, fresh-water animals that possess radial symmetry. Hydra are predatory animals belonging to the phylum Cnidaria and the class Hydrozoa. They can be found in most unpolluted fresh-water ponds, lakes, and streams in the temperate and tropical regions and can be found by gently sweeping a collecting net through weedy areas. They are multicellular organisms which are... 

Activating single gene could extend human lifespan by 30%

Post Pic
David Walker In an experiment on fruit flies, UCLA biologists activated just one gene, AMPK, which extended their lifespan by nearly a third, by helping them to get rid of “cellular garbage” causing old age diseases such as Parkinson’s. Humans have the same gene. “Instead of studying the diseases of aging Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, stroke, cardiovascular disease,... 

Billionaire claims he has reversed aging with stem cell treatments

Post Pic
Billionaire fashion designer Peter Nygard is not only an advocate of stem cell therapy, but hes also a human guinea pig. He says that the stem cells have actually reversed aging, and he even has a scientific study to back him up. “Stem cells are being used for anti-ageing and the University of Miami is doing a study about that to prove that it is true. They are looking at me, and my markers have... 

Garbage man gene could prolong life spans, discoverers say

Post Pic
A team of researchers in the United States has discovered that higher levels of a gene called parkin extend the life span and maintain health in fruit flies. On Monday, the researchers said that a gene, which behaves like a garbage man by disposing of damaged materials in cells, had increased the life spans of fruit flies and may open new windows in dealing with human aging. The study, which was published... 

Eternal life nearly reality

Post Pic
Eternal life without sickness and old age – everyone dreams about it. But this kind of science fiction may eventually become real and it gets real already today. Science moves forward, and the ghostly idea of cryonics has already become a part of modern life. Leading expert of the Institute of Biology of Aging, biophysicist Igor Artyukhov told PRAVDA.Ru chief editor Inna Novikova about his struggle... 

Scientists Are Now Working To Make Humans Immortal

Post Pic
Who doesn’t wish to live on this earth for ever? But death is inevitable. Human beings under the natural process of aging slowly move towards death. Of course, dreadful diseases like cancer often cause human beings to die young. Scientists in advanced countries are now working vigorously on finding out the ways and means to extend human life expectancy, they are even aspiring to make humans... 

The Bacillus of Immortality found in Siberia

Post Pic
In mountain permafrost in Mamontovaya, Yakutia (Siberia), Russian researchers discovered a previously unknown species of bacteria. Mice injected in the body with a solution containing these organisms, were healthier and lived longer than their counterparts. Have the scientists discovered the secrets of immortality? The strange bacillus found in mammoth Mountain in the Siberian Republic of Yakutia...
