Living 150 years and regenerating organs "for the price of a coffee", possible by 2020?


Sci-tech10: 05 02.09.2018 (updated 10:07 02.09.2018 ) Short URL By 2020, a new anti-aging treatment could allow humans to live to 150 years and regenerate organs by reprogramming their cells, all "for the price of one coffee per day", reads in the British daily The Daily Mail. Harvard University professor David Sinclair and researchers at the University of New South Wales in Australia have developed a new process that involves reprogramming cells, reports the daily British The Daily Mail.
Silin said that the technique could regenerate organs and even allow people with paralysis to move again, with tests on humans to take place in two years.
The researchers also found that they could increase the lifespan of test mice by 10% by giving them a vitamin B-based pill that also reduced age-related hair loss.
Mr Sinclair hopes that the miracle pill will be available to the general public in five years, for the same price as a cup of coffee.
This new anti-aging technique involves the nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide (NAD) molecule, which plays a role in the generation of energy by the human body.
The chemical is already used as an adjunct to treat Parkinson's disease and fight against the adverse effects of jet lag.
