Signs of ageing halted in the lab
BBC ^ | November 2, 2011 | James Gallagher

Posted on 11/02/2011 3:37:09 PM PDT by decimon

The onset of wrinkles, muscle wasting and cataracts has been delayed and even eliminated in mice, say researchers in the US.

It was done by "flushing out" retired cells that had stopped dividing. They accumulate naturally with age.

The scientists believe their findings could eventually "really have an impact" in the care of the elderly.

Experts said the results were "fascinating", but should be taken with a bit of caution.

The study, published in Nature, focused on what are known as "senescent cells". They stop dividing into new cells and have an important role in preventing tumours from progressing.

These cells are cleared out by the immune system, but their numbers build up with time. The researchers estimated that around 10% of cells are senescent in very old people.

I take a product called Protandim. It is medically proven to help with anti-aging and diseases such as cardiovascular and Alzheimer's. You can look at it here:

Sometimes it seems like all medical research is really about is giving mice better lives.

Flushing cells? I think this is a bit butchery. Cells need to be communicated with. They have a production, immunization and a self fixing mode and then some. Survivors of irradiation tell a story about this, as well as low metabolics controls.

Eternity is from the mana giver, not the mana itself which eventualy rots worse like new wine skin patch on old skin.

I have some “retired cells” I’d like to flush out!

I’m sure Obamacare will speed the research to get this to market and then pay for the scrips for everyone over 40....

Well, there's a catch. This works in the lab but the moment you step outside...

If this lab miracle gets out and hits the medical-care industry, imagine the social implications...

Just one tiny side-effect. It turns humans into mice.

Today is my birthday. I am 52. I went to a restaurant today and was given the senior discount unsolicited. By an older waitress no less! Not some twenty something that views anyone over 35 ancient.

Yeah, I know the feeling.

Michael Caine related how he was sent a script and called the director to tell him he didn't feel he was right for the part. The director informed him he would be the father of the character he'd assumed would be his.

Sounds like the process Lazarus Long goes through at the beginning of “Time Enough for Love”.

I already have eternal life (Praise the Lord!).

But I would like to look and feel better for *this* part of my eternal life.

I pray to HIM for eternal life... I certainly hope that I qualify. Until then... a bit more energy and less ailments here would be nice!

Thanks decimon.

Ageing is probably caused by excess aluminium.

Aging is okay, considering the alternative.
