Dutch man, 69, applies to legally change his age to 49 years old

WHY THIS MATTERS IN BRIEF As anti-aging technologies arrive one day the elderly may well have the bodies and minds much younger than their years, and that will cause a societal dilemma.   There’s a lot more than you might realise going on in the world of ageing, or more...

Second anti-aging pill that extends lifespans by a quarter heads to human trials

Second anti-aging pill that extends lifespans by a quarter heads to human trials

WHY THIS MATTERS IN BRIEF A bacterium found on Easter Island is the source of a drug that extends life in lab animals, and researchers want to know if it could do the same for humans, but research and regulatory hurdles may make the road ahead a long one.  ...

New breakthrough will make scars and wrinkles a thing of the past

New breakthrough will make scars and wrinkles a thing of the past

WHY THIS MATTERS IN BRIEF Many people have scar tissue, and everyone, one day gets wrinkles, now both of those human frailties could be a thing of the past   There are a few of reasons that scar tissue looks different than regular skin – it lacks hair follicles and it...

In a world first scientists have reversed ageing in mice

In a world first scientists have reversed ageing in mice

WHY THIS MATTERS IN BRIEF As more scientists treat age as a disease, not as an inevitability, we are discovering more ways to turn back the biological clock, one day these treatments might be applied to humans.   Scientists in America have used cellular reprogramming to reverse the ageing process...

Scientists are starting to classify ageing as a disease

Scientists are starting to classify ageing as a disease

WHY THIS MATTERS IN BRIEF By treating age as a disease, not as an inevitable condition, it forces researchers to look at the problem differently and come up with new, unexpected solutions   Many diseases come with old age but the idea of pathologizing ageing itself has been gaining attention...

Accidental discovery pauses life and puts embryos into suspended animation

Accidental discovery pauses life and puts embryos into suspended animation

WHY THIS MATTERS IN BRIEF Being able to put embryos, cells, organisms and people into suspended animation could have a significant impact on anti-ageing, cancer treatments, IVF and space travel.   A new study by researchers at the University of California San Francisco published in Nature this week has shown, for...

Researchers think our cellular powerhouses may be responsible for aging

Researchers think our cellular powerhouses may be responsible for aging

WHY THIS MATTERS IN BRIEF Unravelling the mysteries of aging requires a multi-disciplinary approach, but as scientists gather more evidence the possibility of slowing, or reversing aging becomes more of a reality   Mitochondria — the structures within cells mostly known for converting nutrients into usable energy — may play...

Scientists may have identified the genes responsible for ageing

Scientists may have identified the genes responsible for ageing

Researchers have discovered a link between a protein and aging A protein found within the powerhouse of a cell could be the key to holding back the march of time, research by scientists at The University of Nottingham has shown and the discovery could offer a new target for drugs that...

Generation Z, the first immortal generation?

It’s a matter of When, not If we solve Death and Generation Z could be the first generation to experience Immortality in their lifetimes. Today we can reverse paralysis, restore sight, print hearts, eliminate disease and transfer memories, age is a quirk of genetics, nanotech is a game changer and only Darwinism...
