Swiss researchers experiment with the ‘azot’ gene in hopes of extending human life; works on flies
By Shepard Ambellas
(INTELLIHUB) — A gene known as ‘azot’ can kill malfunctioning cells, keeping tissue healthy, research shows.
In fact the life span of fruit flies were extended up to 60% during tests, creating the potential for human life to be extended up to 120-years as humans also contain the azot gene.
Essentially the gene protects “crucial organs” in the body from building up vast amounts of unhealthy cells allowing for a longer healthier life.
For years scientists and explorers alike have been searching for the fountain of youth and now researchers at the University of Bern may have found it.
The Daily Mail reports:
In the Old Testament, Methuselah was said to have lived for 969 years.
Medieval Knights went on quests to search for the Holy Grail, which was said to bestow powers including extended life.
Alchemists also dedicated themselves to producing the Elixir of Life.
Some scientists have speculated that the human lifespan could be extended to up to 200 years.
Currently the oldest person in the world is Leandra Becerra Lumbreras, a Mexican woman who claims to be 127 years old, although she has apparently not got any evidence to support when she was born.
However, this latest research is still some way from being tested in mammals.
I guess we will have to wait to see how this finding develops, but as of yet it’s looking promising to say the least.
