Fasting-induced anti-aging molecule keeps blood vessels young
New research has found that fasting triggers a molecule that can delay the aging of our arteries. The findings could help prevent age-related chronic diseases, such as cancer, cardiovascular disease, and Alzheimer's.Â
The search for eternal youth has preoccupied the human imagination since the times of Ancient Greece.
In fact, a quick look at Greek mythology shows that youth was more prized than immortality, as someÂ mythsÂ tell the story of how futile the latter is if it's not accompanied by the former.
In this regard, modern medicine has recently been catching up with ancient mythology.
Emerging scientific breakthroughs encourage us to hope that the myth of eternal youth will soon become a reality.
In a recent study, researchers were able toÂ reverse signs of agingÂ such asÂ hair lossÂ and wrinkles in mice; and, perhaps more impressively, another team of researchers managed to rejuvenateÂ aging human cells.
