SIGNS OF AGEING CAN BE REVERSED... IN MICE AT LEAST
The fountain of youth could well be within our grasp, albeit not in liquid form. Scientists at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies in California have managed to reverse ageing in mice by a groundbreaking method that changes adult cells into embryonic ones. This resulted in the mice not just looking younger and living 30% longer, but damaged organ tissue was repaired as well. The news relevant to us is ageing in human skin cells were reversed in a Petri dish.
