From around age forty we start to lose muscle mass due to various aging processes, one of these processes is the accumulation of senescent cells. Senescent cells are simply cells that have become damaged or have reached their maximum number of divisions. Normally these cells are shut down by a kind of self destruct program...
The clearance of senescent cells has been receiving a great deal of attention in the last year or so, and quite rightly so given the impressive results thus far.

Senescent cells are simply cells that have become damaged or have reached their maximum number of divisions. Normally these cells are shut down by...

These instructions are encoded in the organism's DNA within every cell, this is an organism's genetic code (or "genome").Mankind has been altering the genetic code of plants and animals for thousands of years, by selectively breeding individuals with...
