double strand break
Research further illuminating the mechanisms of impaired DNA damage repair associated with aging has recently been published in the journal Aging. Why we age: Genomic InstabilityGenomic instability is the result of gradual damage to DNA in ways that are not naturally repaired. This is a root cause of aging, and it leads to genetic mutations...
A plate with a question mark representing caloric restriction
A short-term caloric restriction diet enhanced a DNA repair process known as non-homologous end joining. These results may partially explain how caloric restriction and similar diets increase lifespan and healthspan in a wide range of organisms. Eat less, live longer Caloric restriction – that is, reduced caloric intake without malnutrition – is one of the...
