Scientific Progress to Radical Antiaging, Aubrey Sees 50+% of Longevity Escape Velocity by 2035

Antiaging expert Aubrey de Grey says antiaging science is considerably closer to robust mouse rejuvenation than we were 10 years ago and the gap between the achievement of robust mouse rejuvenation and the achievement of robust human rejuvenation is also coming down quite fast. Aubrey de Grey is the co-founder of the SENS research foundation …

World Population in 2100 Mainly Impacted by Family Size in Africa

The 2019 revision of the World Population Prospects (WPP), the United Nations projected that the world’s population would grow from 7.7 billion in 2019 to reach 8.5 billion in 2030, 9.7 billion in 2050 and 10.9 billion in 2100. These figures are based on the “medium variant” projection, which assumes a decline in fertility for …

Global Doubling of Cars Versus Doubling of People

The World population of people is not expected to double by 2100. There are currently 7.9 billion people and this should reach 10 billion in 2050 and maybe 11.2 billion in 2100. This assumes that average world life expectancy increase from 72 today to about 80-85 in 2100. If world life expectancy increased by 10 …

Comparing the Life Extension Era with the Pre-Life Extension Era

Life extension has been happening for over 100 years. It doubled in the UK from 40 years to 80 years from 1850 to 2015. It has almost tripled in India from 24 to 69 from 1920 to 2015. An article written by Matthew Bacher on increasing life expectancy is like many other articles that do …

Exercise Protein Lets 65 Year Old Human Equivalent Mice Outperform Middle Age Mice

MOTS-c is one of several recently identified hormones known to mimic the effects of exercise. However, MOTS-c is unique because it is encoded in the small genome of mitochondria rather than the larger genome in a cell’s nucleus. This opens up a whole new genome to target for new interventions, says Lee and researchers at …

Genes for Regulating Stem Cell Aging Identified

The exact gene that caused stem cell aging has been identified. Above – When mesenchymal stem/stromal cells (MSCs) age, the transcription factor GATA6 is increasingly produced in the cell to induce aging response. By transcription factor-based cellular reprogramming, aged MSCs are rejuvenated with a reduction in GATA6 effects on cellular aging. CREDIT AlphaMed Press University …

Most Brain Aging Decline Can Be Fixed Overnight

There are two huge aspects to a new antiaging drug. The first aspect is that a large portion of age-related brain decline is not permanent damage. This non-permanent damage is repaired overnight by a new antiaging drug. The Google-back antiaging company, Calico, has licensed the drug. A new University of San Francisco antiaging drug, called …
