Blog 29 New Approach to Aging

Blog 29 New Approach to Aging by award-winning author, adventurer and scientist Mark Kingston Levin PhD Cellular senescence (deterioration from age) is a condition where normal cells cease to divide. In the early 1960s, biologists Leonard Hayflick and Paul Moorhead made a great discovery that normal human cells divide approximately 50 times before they stop. [...]

Avatar is a way to immortality or extended lifespan by Mark Kingston Levin PhD award-winning author, adventurer and scientist

Japanese airlines ANA is sponsoring the $10 million XPRIZE aiming for Robot Avatars. Will such a robot really be able to let a human see, hear, and feel by 2021? The goals are limited because they use human intelligence and not really machine intelligence.

History of Research into Telomeres and Cell Aging by Mark Kingston Levin PhD award-winning author and scientist

Our human cells are mortal today and thus have a limited renewal. In 1961, Leonard Hayflic discovered and described a limited lifespan due to limits in reproduction cycles of each cell, which is called the “Hayflick limit” of cellular reproductive cycles. Hayflic related these cycles to the number of unique DNA repeats located on the endcaps of the chromosomes.

Regenerative Medicine: New Body Parts, by Mark Kingston Levin PhD

The BBC and CNN reported in July 2011 the successful implantation of the world’s first lab-grown stem cell windpipe in a human subject. This project features people from various parts of the globe starting with the patient: a 36-year-old geology student from Eritrea who was studying in Finland. In June 2011, he became the [...]

A science-based fountain of youth By Mark Kingston Levin PhD

The scientifically-based fountain of youth will keep us from aging little by little until humans live ten times longer than in 2018, which is an average of about 80 years. If we use science to get this fountain of youth, we have a good chance to meet that goal sometime in the future certainly [...]
