UC San Diego Researchers Study Finds Biological Age, Not Birthdate May Reveal Healthy Longevity

Image by pasja1000 from Pixabay August 1, 2022 – A first-of-its-kind study of 1,813 older women suggests that the accelerated biological aging of the body — epigenetic age acceleration specifically — is associated with lower odds of living to be 90 years old and also being physically mobile and having intact mental function. In the … Read more

Biological Age, Not Birthdate May Reveal Healthy Longevity

A new study by Herbert Wertheim School of Public Health and Human Longevity Science researchers suggests that epigenetic age acceleration is associated with lower odds of living to be 90 years old and also being physically mobile and having intact mental function. A first-of-its-kind study of 1,813 older women suggests that the accelerated biological aging … Read more

Deep Longevity granted the first microbiomic aging clock patent – BIOENGINEER.ORG

The neural network that can estimate the age of a person based on their gut flora aging was originally announced on the bioRxiv preprint server in 2018, and later published in a Cell iScience research piece: “Human Gut Microbiome Aging Clock Based on Taxonomic Profiling and Deep Learning”. The Company’s scientists identified bacteria that could … Read more

Secrets of aging revealed in largest study on longevity, aging in reptiles and amphibians – BIOENGINEER.ORG

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. – At 190 years old, Jonathan the Seychelles giant tortoise recently made news for being the “oldest living land animal in the world.” Although, anecdotal evidence like this exists that some species of turtles and other ectotherms – or ‘cold-blooded’ animals – live a long time, evidence is spotty and mostly focused … Read more

This Key Protein Is Essential for Brain Cell Longevity and Growth

Recent research finds that the insulin receptor protein (INSR) is pivotal for brain stem cell longevity and growth. According to a Rutgers University study, the cell receptor protein also stimulates the growth of brain cancer stem cells Stem cells are the body’s raw materials – they are the cells that give rise to all other … Read more

Do You Want a Long Healthy Lifespan? The Characteristics of a “Longevity Diet”

USC professor outlines the characteristics of a “longevity diet” based on a range of nutrition research from studies in laboratory animals to epidemiological research in human populations. Professor Valter Longo leads a review of research in animals and humans to identify how nutrition affects aging and a healthy lifespan. According to University of Southern California … Read more

Scientists find the features of a ‘longevity diet’

Credit: CC0 Public Domain Scientists from the University of Southern California and elsewhere found a clearer picture of what kind of nutrition can offer the best chance for a longer, healthier life. They described the “longevity diet,” a multi-pillar approach based on studies of various aspects of diet, from food composition and calorie intake to … Read more
