Does Our DNA Hold the Key to Living Longer?
In the search for the keys to living longer, researchers are beginning to make more detailed examinations of what happens in our DNA – our central genetic material – as we get older.
The evidence they’re discovering shows that what goes on in those complicated molecules may hold important clues to extending our life expectancy. So, let’s take a peek at what these eye-opening investigations have found.
When researchers from the Wellcome Sanger Institute in England analyzed the DNA genomes of 16 species of mammals, including a variety of animals from giraffes to rodents as well as humans, the scientists discovered that […]
