Researchers were able to turn back the molecular clock by infusing the blood stem cells of old mice with a longevity gene and rejuvenating the aged stem cells’ regenerative potential. The findings were published online today (Thursday, Jan. 31), in the journal Cell Reports.A new study led by researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, represents a major advance in the understanding of the molecular mechanisms behind aging while providing new hope for the development of targeted treatments for age-related degenerative diseases.
What you are about to read is a blueprint by which newly developing technologies may be used to induce biological immortality in human beings. This research goes far beyond what is normally published in Life Extension magazine.

Performing selfless acts of volunteering for others may result in a longer life, according to research published by the American Psychological Association. Volunteers who reported volunteering for altruistic values or a desire for social connections lived longer than people who didn’t volunteer. Similar benefits may be exhibited from working for a particular cause that you believe in.
Since the human race has experienced the condition known as aging, we have been fascinated with the idea of finding a magic potion that can give us immortality. This magic potion has many names. Some people call it the Elixir of Life or the Elixir of Immortality, and others call it monoatomic gold (white powder gold). Finding the Elixir of Life was the goal of many secret societies and royal families. Some even tried to create the Elixir of Life by using the mysterious power of alchemy.
Earlier this month a Japanese man was officially declared the world’s oldest living person at 115, but China is fielding an alternative candidate for the title. This week an official news agency repeated claims that a Chinese woman is 127 years old, which would make her the record-holder by a large margin.
Ray Kurzweil, author and controversial thinker, announced on Friday that he will join Google as a director of engineering; he’ll focus on projects involving machine learning and language processing. Kurzweil is best known for his theory of “technology singularity,” essentially a claim that posits that mankind will create a post-human collective superintelligence through means of advancements in technology.
Medical science and technology may be just two reasons behind a substantial increase in the population living to be older than ever before. An ongoing project conducted by the Boston University School of Medicine called the New England Centenarian Study includes a number of studies that try to identify unique characteristics and commonalities that bring longevity, slow aging and limit disease.
A new study on physical activity that involved more than half a million participants over age 40 found that modest exercise increases life expectancy regardless of weight.
