Washington: A team of scientists from Texas have made important discoveries that bring longer life spans much closer to reality.The research describes how scientists "activated" life extension in the worm, C. elegans, and in the process discovered a new metabolic state correlating with long life."C. elegans has provided a useful animal model for human biology because of their relative simplicity and our understanding of the genes that control their metabolism,” said Gerald Weissmann, Editor-in-Chief of The FASEB Journal.
"This research on worms shows that the secret to a long life comes from how we extract energy from our food," said Weissman."With any luck, we``ll be able to change human life in the same direction: onward and upward!"The study appears in FASEB journal. ANI
