Stem Cell 100 was developed to rejuvenate the human body and slow the aging process. It helps people feel better, look younger and improve their health. During the aging process cells lose function. Everyone has adult stem cells to regenerate damaged and old tissues, but those also are aging. Stem Cell 100 helps rejuvenate adult stem cells and provide support for the telomeres at the ends of chromosomes. Lakewood, Colorado (PRWEB) December 31, 2012 Children are protected from most of the...

Cell aging, or cellular senescence, has an important role in the natural physiological response to tumor development. Activated oncogenes are able to induce senescence, and recent findings have suggested that oncogene-induced senescence (OIS) could play a key role in future cancer therapy. Researchers have now identified a previously unknown mechanism in the regulation of OIS. This study is published online in advance of the January issue of The American Journal of Pathology. In many types...

In efforts to understand what influences life span, cancer and aging, scientists are building roadmaps to navigate and learn about cells at the molecular level. To survey previously uncharted territory, a team of researchers at UW-Madison created an "atlas" that maps more than 1,500 unique landmarks within mitochondria that could provide clues to the metabolic connections between caloric restriction and aging. The map, as well as the techniques used to create it, could lead to a better...

Smoking Linked To Cognitive Decline
2012-11-28 10:37:42

Lawrence LeBlond for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online There´s an overwhelming body of evidence that smoking contributes to cancer, lung disease, heart disease, low birth weight and other health issues. Now, new research from King´s College London is showing that picking up that cigarette is also associated with mental decline such as forgetfulness and slower thinking. And for those over 50, smoking can lead to accelerated decline in brain function. Published today in the...

DNA Methylation Can Help Predict Biological Age
2012-11-22 06:13:28

April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online If you look around at your friends and family, it is clear our biological clocks tick differently. Women tend to live longer than men do, some individuals can look years younger — or older — than their chronological age, and diseases can affect our aging process. The University of California, San Diego School of Medicine led a new study, published online in the journal Molecular Cell, that describes markers and a model...

Telomere Length Predicts Longevity
2012-11-20 13:04:15

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online New research from the University of East Anglia in the UK has found a correlation among biological age, longevity and an individual´s DNA. By studying a wild population of Seychelles Warblers on a small island, the geneticists were able to demonstrate how the end-caps of chromosomes, known as telomeres, shorten due to age and stress, and can be an indication of life expectancy. "Over time these telomeres get broken down and...

Wandering Mind Linked To Telomere Length
2012-11-18 07:59:31

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online While previous research has suggested that individuals with wandering minds could be exhibiting signs of unhappiness, a new study shows that the inability to focus on a task at hand could be linked to aging. In the new study, scientists from the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) discovered that telomere length, a biological measure of aging at both the cellular and overall physiological level, played a role on whether...


Word of the Day
toccata
  • In music, a work for a keyboard-instrument, like the pianoforte or organ, originally intended to utilize and display varieties of touch: but the term has been extended so as to include many irregular works, similar to the prelude, the fantasia, and the improvisation.
This word is Italian in origin, coming from the feminine past participle of 'toccare,' to touch.
