Free radicals are not your enemy | An interview with Dr. Michael Ristow (part i)

Dr. Michael Ristow, a professor of energy metabolism at ETH Zurich, bases much of his research into aging on a premise that many of us will find surprising: the free radicals that our cells produce while making energy are not only not harmful, but can even slow the body’s aging down. But while that might…

Evolution: Pulling doubled lifespan out of a hat

Part III of III in a series on the evolution of aging. (Part I, Part II) Part IPart II If all you had to go on was our genomes, you’d surely conclude that humans and rodents were nearly the same animal, with roughly 92% overlap. And luckily for the species that does science, the other…

Evolution eats the old to feed the young

Part II of III in a series on the evolution of aging. (Part I, Part III) Sex and death have been friends for a long time. Many people would tell you that death–or rather, aging–wasn’t around until we started reproducing sexually, and if you examine the tree of life you’ll see a lot of evidence

The evolution of one of Earth’s longest-living mammals

Here’s an interesting experiment that I don’t recommend trying at home. Take a strain of mice, and choose what age you’d like them to live to. The average lifespan for mice in captivity is around two years, so let’s say you give them six months. Kill the first generation after six months, and do that…

How your ancestors’ lifestyle determines your lifespan
