there’s no known limit to how long humans can live




last october, scientists made a splash when they determined that on average, people can only live for about 115 years. that was the magic age at which the human body and brain just petered out; it wasn’t designed to chug along much longer than that, they said.that conclusion, published in the jour...



chemical that detects plaques in alzheimer's brains extends lifespan of roundwor




while many anti-aging drugs don't live up to their claim, a tightly replicated study by rutgers and a group of researchers from around the country discovered that a chemical used to detect amyloid plaques found in the brains of those with alzheimer's extended the lifespan of thousands of roundworms ...



learning and staying in shape key to longer lifespan, study finds




people who are overweight cut their life expectancy by two months for every extra kilogramme of weight they carry, research suggests.a major study of the genes that underpin longevity has also found that education leads to a longer life, with almost a year added for each year spent studying beyond s...

low protein diet in early life increases lifespan in fruit flies




fruit flies raised on a low protein diet early in life can live over twice as long as their peers, according to new research from the francis crick institute.to understand how diet in early life acts to alter lifespan, scientists used the fruit fly, drosophila melanogaster. this insect shares more t...

study finds bonobos may be better representation of the last common ancestor wit




a new study examining the muscular system of bonobos provides firsthand evidence that the rare great ape species may be more closely linked, anatomically, to human ancestors than common chimpanzees. previous research suggested this theory at the molecular level, but this is the first study to compar...



study finds that napping flies have higher resistance to deadly human pathogen




a new university of maryland study has found that fruit flies genetically coded to take frequent naps had the strongest resistance to both a fungal infection and to a bacteria that the world health organization says is one of the world's most dangerous superbugs for humans.



organic is only one ingredient in recipe for sustainable food future




many people choose organic thinking it's better for humans and the planet, but a new ubc study published in science advances finds that might not always be the case.



variation at a central metabolic gene influences male fruit fly lifespan




the overexpression of an important gene that regulates energy metabolism can cause a severe shortening of lifespan in male fruit flies but has only a small negative effect on lifespans of female fruit flies, according to new research from north carolina state university. the findings, which involve ...



cats care about people more than food, new study finds

caspian sea evaporating as temperatures rise, study finds




earth's largest inland body of water has been slowly evaporating for the past two decades due to rising temperatures associated with climate change, a new study finds.



scientists discover genetic timetable of brain's aging process




the programme controls how and when brain genes are expressed at different times in a person's life to perform a range of functions, the study found.experts say the timing is so precise that they can tell the age of a person by looking at the genes that are expressed in a sample of brain tissue.scie...

neanderthal remains of 8-year-old boy reveal secrets of the large brain




the remains of a young neanderthal boy are helping shed light on how neanderthals developed such large brains (larger than that of modern humans, in fact). according to the study, these larger brains were likely due to longer growth periods. such a conclusion was made by analyzing the largely comple...
