Introducing Health Nucleus — How to Extend The Healthy Human Lifespan. "En 2045 la muerte será opcional" "En 2045 la muerte será opcional" y para entonces el envejecimiento "será una enfermedad curable", asevera el ingeniero y profesor fundador de la Singularity University en Silicon Valley, José Luis Cordeiro.

"En 2045 la muerte será opcional"

Cordeiro, quien estudió en el Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) en Cambridge, donde se licenció en Ingeniería Mecánica, asegura en una entrevista que "vamos a curar el envejecimiento" y no sólo eso, sino que también afirma que el proceso se revertirá y "seremos capaces de rejuvenecer". Él mismo dice que no piensa morir, "ahora sólo ganamos tiempo con cuerpos que envejecen", pero afirma que llegará un día en que "se podrá detener el envejecimiento". El explorador Juan Ponce de León llegó al nuevo continente y buscó la fuente de la eterna juventud, "pero se adelantó a su tiempo", bromea. La prueba de que curar el envejecimiento es posible, explica, es que "ya existen células que no envejecen en la naturaleza", como las germinales, las cancerígenas o algunas bacterias.

Real Future: Meet Zoltan Istvan, the Transhumanist Running For President (Episode 5) Zoltan Istvan y el Partido Transhumanista. Se han producido muchos descubrimientos en 2014 que han pasado desapercibidos por la mayor parte de la sociedad.

Zoltan Istvan y el Partido Transhumanista

Los ciudadanos no han apreciado los grandes avances en interfaz cerebro-máquina, ni en neurotecnología ni nanotecnología, entre otras razones porque desconocen estas tecnologías emergentes que representan todo un mundo que nos lleva a una simbiosis hombre-máquina con el fin de alargar nuestras vidas en un futuro diferente. En el año 2014 ha crecido el Movimiento Transhumanista que promueve la fusión de los seres humanos y las computadoras, y recomienda la utilización de implantes electrónicos para mejor nuestra capacidad cognitiva, la expansión de la consciencia y alargar nuestra esperanza de vida. Unos propósitos que llevaron a la aparición del Transhumanist Party y la candidatura de Zoltan Istvan a la presidencia de Estados Unidos en 2016.

Su teoría denominada “Singularidad” tiene muchísimo que ver con la nutrición, el anti-envejecimiento y mejorar la calidad de vida. Este científico estadounidense afirma que en el año 2045, el ser humano será inmortal. Hoy, Kurzweil tiene 64 años y decidió llegar sano mental y físicamente a ese acontecimiento, a ese momento en donde no moriríamos más.

Es decir, quiere a sus 97 años ser también inmortal y, como faltan 33 años de cuidar su vida y mantenerse lo más sano y joven posible, escribió su libro TRANSCEND: Nueve pasos para vivir bien para siempre, donde asegura que es posible disminuir drásticamente los procesos del envejecimiento, y en muchos casos detenerlos o revertirlos. Anti-ageing drugs developed that banish wrinkles and chronic diseases. Scientists have discovered that the genes linked to youthful looks and supple limbs also appear to affect how long we live.

Anti-ageing drugs developed that banish wrinkles and chronic diseases

The breakthrough finding could lead to “elixir of life” anti-ageing drugs that would slow down or even put off the development of chronic age-related diseases. It could even lead to a new generation of cosmetics which help hold back the ageing process and boost overall health. Researchers found the life-extending secret is all thanks to an increase in the activity of genes that produce both collagen - which is vital to young-looking skin - and other proteins found in the body’s “extra-cellular matrix” (ECM).

The new research was published online ahead of print by the journal Aging Cell. The scientists coined the term “senolytics” for the new class of drugs. “We view this study as a big, first step toward developing treatments that can be given safely to patients to extend healthspan or to treat age-related diseases and disorders,” said TSRI Professor Paul Robbins, PhD, who with Associate Professor Laura Niedernhofer, MD, PhD, led the research efforts for the paper at Scripps Florida. “When senolytic agents, like the combination we identified, are used clinically, the results could be transformative. . ” , a natural compound sold as a supplement that acts as an antihistamine and anti-inflammatory.

Telomeres, Death Risk Linked By New Data From Genetic 'Biobank' By Jocelyn Kaiser SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA—Researchers who have assembled a trove of genetic and medical data on 100,000 northern Californians unveiled their initial findings here this week at the annual meeting of the American Society of Human Genetics (ASHG).

The effort, which may be the largest such "biobank" in the United States, has already yielded an intriguing connection between mortality and telomeres, the protective DNA sequences that cap chromosome ends, and found new links between genetic variants and disease traits. And that's just the beginning, say the biobank's curators at Kaiser Permanente (KP), the giant health care organization. Controversy Surrounds New Telomere-Measuring Blood Test. Telomere Update: Healthy Lifestyle Choices Slow Aging. What are telomeres and how do they affect your life? Getting your telomeres tested is the latest way to check how fast, or slow, you’re aging.

Shortened telomeres not only reveal biological age, they are also associated with worsening disease for cancer patients and decreased survival time for those with coronary artery disease. What are the best telomere tests? What do you do if the test reveals that your telomeres are unraveling? Several proprietary nutritional products claim to add length to your shortened telomeres. I’ve been following telomere research ever since my book Prolonging Health came out in 2002.

Reliable news and intelligent commentary on the science of healthy aging. If you haven’t already, you will be hearing a lot in the coming years about telomeres—a part of our cellular anatomy that holds dramatic new information about the trajectory of our health and may turn out to provide the single most important biomarker of aging. A telomere is the protective cap at the end of a chromosome, the thread-like structure that carries the genetic material of our cells. Think of it as akin to the plastic tips that prevent the ends of a shoelace from fraying. Telomeres keep our chromosomes intact, healthy and functioning—allowing them to reproduce cells, which is the key to healthy aging, if not life itself. WTF Is Calico, And Why Does Google Think Its Mysterious New Company Can Defy Aging? The sad truth is that, if everyone on the Forbes 400 list simultaneously (and tragically) got cancer, or Parkinsons (or any given disease for that matter), the world would probably be well on its way to finding a cure for these illnesses, thanks to the enormous wealth that would be incentivized to back those efforts.

Finding a cure for an intractable disease requires time, enormous amounts of human and financial capital, cooperation and research — and at least a few public-private partnerships. It’s costly, and it’s messy. This is why Calico, Google’s newest mad science project, is potentially so exciting. In fact, Calico could represent the company’s largest health-care initiative since Google Health sprinted its way into obscurity. Of course, Google is a different company today than it was in 2008 (when it launched Google Health) and so are we.

Led by former Genentech CEO and current Apple Chairman, Arthur D. Apple Chairman, Arthur D. What Will Our Telomeres Tell Us? None of these studies have shown a causal relationship yet—in other words, we can’t say whether shortened telomeres are a cause of major diseases or just a reflection of them. Blood Test Can Determine How Quickly Body Is Aging. A new blood test could potentially offer some proof that many people really are older than they look. The test, set to go on sale to the British public later this year, measures the length of a person's telomeres, which are the pieces of DNA at the ends of chromosomes. As cells keep dividing with age, the telomeres get shorter and shorter. By measuring telomeres, some scientists believe they can determine biological age, which doesn't always equal chronological age.

"That means some people may be biologically older or younger than their age," said Jerry Shay, professor and vice chairman of cell biology at UT Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas. Telomere Length: Cause of Aging or Marker of Aging? Telomeres are repeating sequences of nucleic acids that cap the ends of chromosomes in the cell nucleus and stop actual gene-coding DNA from being chopped off when a cell divides.

The mechanisms of DNA replication require extra leg room at the ends of the strand, a trailing sequence that is not copied over to the new strand under assembly - and the primary role of telomeres is to be the part that is dropped on the floor. A little of their length is thus lost with every cell division. This shortening acts as a clock to count cell divisions, and cells with very short telomeres stop replicating - they either enter cellular senescence (which ideally then causes the immune system to destroy them) or destroy themselves directly via programmed cell death mechanisms. Telomere length is more dynamic than this simple picture, however.

Ordinary, non-stem cell populations exhibit a range of telomere lengths, some short, some long. The £400 test that tells you how long you'll live. A blood test that can show how fast someone is ageing – and offers the tantalising possibility of estimating how long they have left to live – is to go on sale to the general public in Britain later this year. Graphic: How the test works The controversial test measures vital structures on the tips of a person's chromosomes, called telomeres, which scientists believe are one of the most important and accurate indicators of the speed at which a person is ageing.

Scientists behind the €500 (£435) test said it will be possible to tell whether a person's "biological age", as measured by the length of their telomeres, is older or younger than their actual chronological age. Medical researchers believe that telomere testing will become widespread within the next five or 10 years, but there are already some scientists who question its value and whether there should be stronger ethical controls over its wider use.
