In the wake of scientifically well founded anti ageing trials, that have been taking place now for a number of years in the USA, serious notice is now being taken of processes offering the potential to slow down the ageing process in humans.
This is further supported by the 2009 Nobel Prize for physiology or medicine as a result of 20 years of research into telomeres, the caps found at the end of DNA chromosomes.
As unbelievable as it seems to most people science fiction is fast becoming science fact.
Researchers have discovered that these caps at the end of chromosomes are involved in the ageing process and that every time a cell divides they get closer to cell death and the limit of cell reproduction, known as the Hayflick limit. This is the stage when the cells are unable to maintain the ability to continue dividing. As the cells move toward this stage they are reproduced with DNA faults and organs of the body start failing and causing...
