Have We Found the Key to Eternal Youth? Scientists Successfully Turn Back the Clock in Old Human Cells! Fountain of Youth: Immortality Achievable by Altering Chromosomes!
- Published on Feb 4, 2015
A long sought-after miracle, scientists now say they have a solution to one of mankind’s most ancient pursuits: eternal life. In the 16th century, Ponce de Leon traveled to Florida in search of the Fountain of Youth. So the legend goes, at least. Dracula, the vampire creation of Bram Stoker, achieves immortality by feeding off the living. Even the Indiana Jones series employs one of its several Nazi face-melting scenes after the villain drinks from a phony Holy Grail.
Though clearly popular in fiction and lore, immortality has been elusive. But a group of scientists now think they have the key, and it may lie at the most base level of aging: our chromosomes.
All chromosomes are protected by thin, protective caps known as telomeres. Located on each end of a chromosome, these telomeres defend against deterioration as cells grow.
