ANTI-AGE­ING PILL?

Australian Women’s Weekly NZ - - WELLBEING -

Sci­en­tists have made a dis­cov­ery that could rev­o­lu­tionise the hu­man age­ing process. In tests on mice, they have been able to re­pair DNA dam­age caused by ra­di­a­tion and age­ing, mak­ing the cells of the older mice al­most iden­ti­cal to those of the younger mice. Hu­man tri­als of the anti-age­ing treat­ment – which has the po­ten­tial to work won­ders for as­tro­nauts, fre­quent fly­ers and child­hood can­cer sur­vivors suf­fer­ing from ac­cel­er­ated age­ing – will be­gin later this year in the US.
