A new idea for how anti-aging products delay ripening of fruit and wilting of flowers

RIVERSIDE, Calif. When plants encounter ethylene, a gas they also produce naturally as a hormone, the result is softening and ripening in the case of fruit, and wilting and fading in the case of flowers all of which ethylene promotes. To delay these effects, growers spray plants with produc...

Human stem cells delay start of Lou Gehrig's disease in rats
