its effect on survival in this first analysis,” Miller says. “It may be that the female mice because of their hormonal status have other pathways to death and disability, or need higher or lower levels of NDGA to see an effect.” The large, c...

Mutating the entire genome
...at least half of the ‘junk’ DNA is going to end up having
