Malcolm Gladwell: Do Genetic Advantages Make Sports Unfair? Toward the end of “The Sports Gene” (Penguin/Current), David Epstein makes his way to a remote corner of Finland to visit a man named Eero Mäntyranta. Mäntyranta lives in a small house next to a lake, among the pine and spruce trees north of the Arctic Circle. He is in his seventies.
Longevity Gene: Discovery opens the door to a potential 'molecular fountain of youth' Jan. 31, 2013 — A new study led by researchers at the University of California, Berkeley, represents a major advance in the understanding of the molecular mechanisms behind aging while providing new hope for the development of targeted treatments for age-related degenerative diseases. Older and fitter? New findings from a UC Berkeley-led study could have implications for the development of treatments for age-related degenerative diseases.

IMPORTANT MEDICAL DISCOVERY - CURE FOR CANCER, AIDS etc
MIT and Hong Kong University researchers have shown that some simple biodegradable liquids can stop bleeding in wounded rodents within seconds, a development that could significantly impact medicine. When the liquid, composed of protein fragments called peptides, is applied to open wounds, the peptides self-assemble into a nanoscale protective barrier gel that seals the wound and halts bleeding. Once the injury heals, the nontoxic gel is broken down into molecules that cells can use as building blocks for tissue repair. material stops bleeding in seconds

Sep. 5, 2012 — A team of experts in mechanics, materials science, and tissue engineering at Harvard has created an extremely stretchy and tough gel that may pave the way to replacing damaged cartilage in human joints. Tough gel stretches to 21 times its length, recoils, and heals itself: Biocompatible material much tougher than cartilage

UC Davis News & Information :: Chemical widely used in antibacterial hand soaps may impair muscle function Triclosan, an antibacterial chemical widely used in hand soaps and other personal-care products, hinders muscle contractions at a cellular level, slows swimming in fish and reduces muscular strength in mice, according to researchers at the University of California, Davis, and the University of Colorado. The findings appear online in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences of the United States of America.
