A new study from UC San Francisco is the first to show that while the impact of life's stressors accumulate overtime and accelerate cellular aging, these negative effects may be reduced by maintaining a healthy diet, exercising and sleeping well.
In captivity, grey parrots are often kept in social isolation, which can have detrimental effects on their health and wellbeing.
Scientists from Carnegie Mellon University have recently discovered that our susceptibility to infections and our future health may be foretold by chromosome tips, known as telomeres. These chromosome tips are special DNA sequences that prevent DNA in chromosomes from unraveling.
Researchers have revealed how a molecule called telomerase contributes to the control of the integrity of our genetic code, and when it is involved in the deregulation of the code, its important role in the development of cancer.
Scientists of the German Cancer Research Center have discovered an alternative mechanism for the extension of the telomere repeat sequence by DNA repair enzymes.

A new study suggests that shorter length of leukocyte telomeres â€“ chromosome markers of biological aging â€“ are associated with an increased risk of cancer and death from cancer.
Scientists from the University of Warwick and University Hospitals Coventry and Warwickshire NHS Trust, are the first to directly measure a specific region of DNA in human embryos.
Intensive exercise prevented shortening of telomeres, a protective effect against aging of the cardiovascular system, according to research reported in Circulation: Journal of the American Heart Association.
