You can make animals live longer in the lab

Oh, here is where Im storing articles about life extension research. Its all self explanatory, so no need to blog about it B^) There are several ways the make animals live longer in the lab. Lower temp, dietary restriction, drugs, etc. Read old copies of the Handbook of the Biology of Aging. Lately, they’ve made some progress on figuring out why caloric restriction or methionine restriction works…

Of course, the official scientific stance right now, is…’yes its true, but we dont know why yet’ ….

In reality, there has been progress, some genes identified, and some drugs targeted to produce the effect. It’s not on the shelf yet. But there is some progress on an anti-aging drug(s). Some of the interesting ones, have already been approved for humans (for other uses). Valproic acid is one.
