A Knowledge Hub for Aging and Longevity
As part of our commitment to education our goal is to share evidence-based knowledge about aging and rejuvenation among the general public, the business sector, policymakers, and philanthropists. To achieve this goal we have created an educational hub to help our readers learn more about the biology of aging. Here you can find a range of topics covering the biology of aging and other related subjects.
If you are new to the topic, we recommend starting with the basics and reading our pages about why we age and what is life extension.
What is the Average Life Expectancy in America?The United States has many demographic aspects that have significant regional variations, and life expectancy is one of them. Life expectancy in the United States varies by decades, and health expectancy is similar. […]
Urea Is a Blood Biomarker of AgingIn 2013, Steve Horvath developed a highly accurate artificial intelligence-driven method of determining biological age . This long-awaited development ushered in a new era of aging research. For the first time, it enabled researchers in academia and industry to […]
Red Blood Cells as Biomarkers of AgingThe advent of artificial intelligence and its application to the study of aging and longevity took a giant leap forward in 2013 with the development of tools for measuring […]
The Relationship Between ApoE and Alzheimer’sAlzheimer’s disease is the most typical form of dementia. It is a progressive disease that begins with mild memory loss, leads to profound cognitive deficits, and ends with death. 10% to 14% of adults over 65 have some form […]
Haemopoiesis: How Blood Is CreatedIt may seem obvious, but blood is made from many things. Blood plasma, for instance, is mostly made of water, carrying proteins and cells along […]
Blood Glucose Is a Biomarker of AgingGlucose is the second most influential biomarker on the rate of aging, according to Aging.ai’s age prediction platform. Glucose control is vital to human health, and uncontrolled high glucose results in diabetes. In the United States, one in ten individuals […]
What Alkaline Phosphatase Is and DoesThe primary function of phosphatases is to remove phosphate groups from proteins, changing how they function and relate to other proteins and providing a crucial function in cellular signaling. Alkaline […]
Albumin as a Blood Biomarker of AgingThe application of artificial intelligence to the study of aging in 2013 led to the development of tools for measuring biological age and predicting mortality, which is defined as the frequency of death in […]
