Dr Katcher’s E5 Lifespan Experiment Final Result | 22% Lifespan Extension

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, genetics, life extension

So, 22% increase. Roughly like a 120 person, which means if this literally translates to people it means a maximizing of our current lifespan. The rest is just a rundown of Aubrey’s experiment.

Dr Katcher’s lifespan experiment has come to an end as the last remaining rat, Sima, has died. She was 1,464 days old which is a record for Sprague-Dawley rats. We also talk about the exciting Robust Mouse Rejuvenation project at the LEV Foundation.

Tomorrow Biostasis: The Berlin Startup That Wants to Bring You Back from the Dead

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, cryonics, life extension, neuroscience

What if death was not the end? What if, instead of saying our final goodbyes to loved ones, we could freeze their bodies and bring them back to life once medical technology has advanced enough to cure their fatal illnesses? This is the mission of Tomorrow Biostasis, a Berlin-based startup that specializes in cryopreservation.

Cryopreservation, also known as biostasis or cryonics, is the process of preserving a human body (or brain) in a state of suspended animation, with the hope that it can be revived in the future when medical technology has advanced enough to treat the original cause of death. This may seem like science fiction, but it is a legitimate scientific procedure, and Tomorrow Biostasis is one of the few companies in the world that offers this service.

Dr Emil Kendziorra, co-founder and CEO of Tomorrow Biostasis explained that the goal of cryopreservation is to extend life by preserving the body until a cure can be found for the original illness. He emphasized that cryopreservation is not a form of immortality, but rather a way to give people a second chance at life.

Depressive Symptoms And Memory Loss in Older Adults Linked to Telomere Shortening

Posted by in categories: life extension, neuroscience

There’s a tiny, slow-burning ‘fuse’ attached to the ends of all our chromosomes, and as we naturally age, each of our cells loses more and more of that life-giving line.

Researchers in South Korea have now shown this fuse, known as the telomere, is unusually short in the cells of elderly people who are relatively healthy but have noticed early signs of depressive symptoms and cognitive decline, such as memory loss.

The randomized controlled trial presents more evidence for the telomere hypothesis of aging, which posits that all cells hit a point where they can no longer divide and replicate.
