Less Children Mean Longer Life?

University of Gothenburg New research into ageing processes, based on modern genetic techniques, confirms theoretical expectations about the correlation between reproduction and lifespan. Studies of birds reveal that those that have offspring later in life and have fewer broods live longer. And the decisive factor is telomeres, shows research from The University of Gothenburg, Sweden. Telomeres are the protective caps at the end of chromosomes. The length of telomeres influences how...

DNA Strand Length Can Predict Heart Disease Death

Lee Rannals for redOrbit.com — Your Univere Online Researchers studying more than 3,500 patients with heart disease say the length of DNA strands can help predict life expectancy. Scientists at the Intermountain Heart Institute at Intermountain Medical Center in Salt Lake City presented a new study March 9 at the American College of Cardiology's Annual Scientific Session in San Francisco, claiming they were able to predict survival rates among patients with heart disease. The...

Among healthy adults who were administered a cold virus, those with shorter telomere length (a structure at the end of a chromosome) in certain cells were more likely to develop experimentally-induced upper respiratory infection than participants with longer telomeres, according to results of preliminary research published in the February 20 issue of JAMA. Telomeres shorten with each cell division and function as protective caps to prevent erosion of genomic DNA during cell division....

Biological Markers In Chromosomes Predict The Common Cold

[Watch Video: Biological Marker Predicts Susceptibility To Common Cold] Lawrence LeBlond for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online While predicting future events has been met with much skepticism, many scientists make it their life work to predict what will happen in the future. Such predictions include what regional weather will be like, how much warmer the planet will be, and even when the Sun will die. But predictive science is not limited to just forecasting the weather or...

The TA-65 Users Survey included the collection of qualitative data gathered through survey research. This study outlined the TA-65 longevity and health benefits seen in actual human subjects, during the course of the 6 months. New York, NY (PRWEB) February 17, 2013 Telomeres are protective pieces of DNA material at the ends of every chromosome in every cell in the body. Telomeres, like protective caps at the end of our shoelaces, function to protect the integrity of the genome and preserve...

Healthy menopausal women carrying a well-known genetic risk factor for Alzheimer's disease showed measurable signs of accelerated biological aging, a new study has found. However, in carriers who started hormone therapy at menopause and remained on that therapy, this acceleration was absent, the researchers said. Hormone therapy for non-carriers of the risk factor, a gene variant called ApoE4, had no protective effect on their biological aging. "This shows that ApoE4 is contributing to...

Isagenix introduces a new youth pill that may help to reverse the aging process that affects almost every part of the body. Chandler, AZ USA (PRWEB) January 08, 2013 Isagenix has recently announced a new product called Product B. Product B is a health supplement that has recently emerged. This health supplement could help to reverse the aging process that takes over almost every part of the body. The Reason We Age The reason we age is simple. The reason we age is because our cells divide...

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...


Word of the Day
