Research on Worms Yields Clues on Aging

...t the drugs did notmimic the anti-aging effects of caloric restriction, because the wormshad abundant food and looked well-fed. The researchers alsodemonstrated that anticonvulsants did not extend life by protecting theworms from pathogenic bacteria in their environment.Ethosuximide and trimethadione did, ho...

Research may provide new link between soft drinks and weight gain

...fat than the mice that consumed water only. Total caloric intake was lower in the mice that consumed the fructose-sweetened water than in the other groups, except for the control animals provided with water only. "We were surprised to see that mice actually ate less when exposed to fructose-sweetened bever...

Researchers extend mouse lifespan by protecting against free radicals

...riments by managing their diets and reducing their caloric intake. Another method relied on the restriction of a growth factor, but a side effect was that the mice suffered from dwarfism. However, neither of those methods of elongating the mouse lifespan was clearly connected to the free-radical theory of ag...

New technique multiplies life span in simple organisms

... normal - when the SIR2 deletion was combined with caloric restriction and/or a mutation in one or two genes, RAS2 and SCH9, that control the storage of nutrients and resistance to cell damage. Human cells with reduced SIR2 activity also appear to confirm that SIR2 has a pro-aging effect, Longo said, althou...

By finding the geographic origins of rice, researchers can consider ways to improve the crop's nutritional value and disease resistance, which in turn can help impoverished populations in Asia and elsewhere that rely heavily ...

Cutting calories slightly can reduce aging damage

...major importance because it shows a mild degree of caloric restriction - just enough to prevent weight gain with advancing age - can have beneficial effects against aging. From a scientific perspective, he added, it is important to learn that RNA is a very good marker of aging damage. "I'd never really thou...
