Aging can be reversed in mice. Are people next?


Aging can be reversed in mice. Are people next?

https://edition.cnn.com/2023/01/12/health/reversing-aging-scn-wellness/index.html

In Boston labs, old, blind mice have regained their eyesight, developed smarter, younger brains and built healthier muscle and kidney tissue. On the flip side, young mice have prematurely aged, with devastating results to nearly every tissue in their bodies.

The experiments show aging is a reversible process, capable of being driven forwards and backwards at will, said anti-aging expert David Sinclair, a professor of genetics in the Blavatnik Institute at Harvard Medical School and codirector of the Paul F. Glenn Center for Biology of Aging Research.

Our bodies hold a backup copy of our youth that can be triggered to regenerate, said Sinclair, the senior author of a new paper showcasing the work of his lab and international scientists.

 That kidney improvement would be great, no more nocturnal trips to the can.

Probably not Dogbox, it will be expensive and covid is still killing us at an alarming rate. But apparently better to kill oldies, cheaper than giving care.

i would have thought there were not enough of us, dying fast enough, to save the planet as it is now.

 hahahaha, good one

I don't understand this "younger is better" mentality.  I was miserable when I was young, now I don't care about anything, it's much more relaxed and pleasant.  I like being old/er. Shrug.
