Fast mimicked diet reduces ageing in mice: New study

Photo Credits: Trocaire on Flickr A new research has shown that calorie restricted food that mimics prolonged fasting (PF) can regenerate and promote longevity in mice. A new research by University of Southern California has found that feeding mice with calorie restricted food that mimics fasting for just 4 days produced results – encouraged regeneration in multiple organs/systems and increased ...

Type 1 Diabetes Ages Brain Faster, Slows Down Cognitive Functions: Study

Type 1 diabetes effect on brain results in aging faster than normal slowing down memory retention, recollection and and processing, said a study. Researchers from the University of Pittsburgh who studied the impact of type 1 diabetes on patients now suggest that doctors should go for frequent screening of the brain to test for cognitive functions, especially in the middle-aged ...

Remain Young For Long if New Treatment on Telemers Help Curb Cell-Ageing

Remaining young is on everybody’s mind and if the latest finding by scientists turns true, then a new treatment to extend telomeres — protective “end caps” for chromosomes that help keep DNA healthy — may slow the process of cell ageing, keeping us young for longer. With the time, these protective “end caps” become shorter with each DNA replication and ...

Study Offers Fresh Hope to Tackle Signs of Ageing

A study by researchers offer future hope for tackling signs of ageing associated with diseases and conditions after identifying ‘markers’ that could spot old cells in the body. The markers also have the potential to assist with treating cancer. The research, which has shown promise in clinical samples, said that accumulation of old cells (called “senescent”) in human tissue can ...

Flies Show why females live longer than males: Study

Researchers from the University of Exeter in Britain found that male flies die earlier than their female counterparts when forced to evolve with the pressures of mating and juvenile survival, which means females survive challenges of ageing better than males. “We found dramatic differences in the effects of sexual and natural selection on male and female flies. These results could ...
