Overwork
In the largest study of its kind to date, researchers have revealed that a considerable part of all deaths from ischemic heart disease and stroke worldwide is caused by working long hours [1]. Beware of Karoshi What can we do to live longer until science can produce a suitable solution to aging? One of the...
Research mouse
A study published in Aging has shown that the sirtuin SIRT6 has positive effects on multiple hallmarks of aging in the hearts of mice. Sirtuins Sirtuins are a family of proteins that have been shown to have significant effects on longevity in multiple model organisms. In a previous study, the sirtuin SIRT2 was shown to...

The findings have ramifications for treating heart disease, which is currently the world's greatest killer. Revealing how LDL gets into our cells We have all likely heard about good...
Mitochondria
Researchers from the University of California, Irvine have demonstrated that mitochondrial transplants can give cells a boost of energy and could potentially be the basis of therapies to address various cardiovascular, neurodegenerative, and metabolic diseases. The mitochondria are the powerhouses of our cells, converting the nutrients we consume into energy to be used by every...
