Scientists Just Successfully Reversed Ageing in Lab Grown Human Cells


Whoa.

LORNA HARRIES & MATT WHITEMAN, THE CONVERSATION 13 AUG 2018

The ability to reverse ageing is something many people would hope to see in their lifetime. This is still a long way from reality, but in our latest experiment, we have reversed the ageing of human cells, which could provide the basis for future anti-degeneration drugs.

Ageing can be viewed as the progressive decline in bodily function and is linked with most of the common chronic diseases that humans suffer from, such as cancer, diabetes and dementia.

There are many reasons why our cells and tissues stop functioning, but a new focus in the biology of ageing is the accumulation of "senescent" cells in the tissues and organs.

Senescent cells are older deteriorated cells that do not function as they should, but also compromise the function of cells around them.

Tired of this growing old shit.

7. There's nothing much to recommend it, is there?

If anything can be said for it, it would be there's gratitude that it's not possible to repeat too many of the wildly embarrassing things that have happened already! Somethings you're not likely to do again, having had quite enough the first time!

Yeouch!

8. I joke about it

But I wouldnít go back to being twenty for love nor money.

I had more energy to do dumb things back then, but not the sagacity to avoid them!

4. You are so kind, thank you, ZZenith. I spend a lot of time looking for them, love finding things

I hope might be interesting to others.

I never cease to be amazed almost every day I have the time to dive in and look around. So very much to learn, not nearly enough time to get it done!

It seems there is an enormous number of breakthroughs going on at a far faster rate than ever before, doesn't it? Overwhelming.

6. I can barely keep up with your posts

And I know you arenít catching all of it!

Exciting times to be alive - if our moral growth can catch up to our technological advances we may just survive as a species.

10. You certainly hit the target with that comment. It's painfully accurate. n/t

3. I reply to your OPs only on the rarest occasion.

Although, I do recommend quite a few of them. Since I've literally never seen a response back from you to me, or to anyone else, it doesn't seem to matter to you either way.

But some of them seem to be about a topic pretty much everyone might be interested in. So that's why I respond when I do - in hopes that others who are interested (like those who post in a different time zone) will get a chance to read them.

And that is why I'm posting now. Maybe a few more DUers will kick this to the top overnight so others who would be interested will see it in the morning.

5. Sorry. To tell you the truth, I am actually quite shy, and don't speak from a wealth of knowledge.

I am more comfortable looking for information and trying to post it.

If you've never been this way, it would be impossible to understand, but there is nothing like indifference connected to it.

Thank you, very much.

15. The earth won't hold more and more and more people

If aging doesn't kill us, what will the new criteria be?
