It may even seem like a daydream of a movie character who is trying at any cost to become an immortal being, but two separate, in-progress searches aim at an extremely difficult task: discovering the secret of immortality.
In general, the human being dies due to the aging of the cells or to the bankruptcy of the organs. So what would happen if we could stop aging and replace organs before they both could compromise our health?
Aubrey de Gray, a researcher at the University of Cambridge, was able to isolate an enzyme from a bacterium, keeping them choked and preventing them from dying. Gray believes that the process can be performed on human cells, as long as the same enzyme is isolated.
Already molecular geneticist Bill Andrews( on the left side ) has discovered a supplement that holds the telomeres, a kind of DNA strands at the end of the chromosomes, smaller. Thanks to this, the researcher believes that can control the deterioration of the cells, reversing the aging process. Will any of them be successful in their research?
