    Yes, very interesting research.

    But no reason yet to be enthusiastic, it's still fundamental work.

    They did not reverse aging in normal mice, but on genetically modified mice.

    In short, they crafted a mice with problems leading to early aging, and then fixed the problem and saw mice organs regenerate.

    I'll wait to see if they can have the same regenerating effect on normal mouse, because telomerase shortening is just one of the many sources of physiological aging.

    I thought some hacker from Russia took over metta's account ("reverse aging with our super anti-aging cream")...icon_lol.gif
    It's too late for all of us. Those born just about now will probably be the first to benefit from anti-aging therapy...if we're still around in 2050.
    Joan Collins looked great on Rules of ENgagement about a month ago.

    Great. Mice are always the lucky ones! Not only do they prance with constant wood, cancer free, fine shades of blush on their snowy white cheeks, but now they are age free. Jeez man! Get with the game and share with the bipeds!
