When asked about how we age, most will say, “Gradually.” And it turns out to be wrong, judging by the latest research by scientists from Stanford University in the United States, as reported by RIA Novosti.
In fact, experts identify certain stages of aging. Researchers announced three age points, refuting the idea of a gradual, daily change in the body, says Focus.
In the course of scientific research, for which they used blood plasma samples taken from 4263 people 18-95 years old, they came to the conclusion that the proportion of about 3000 different proteins does not change over decades. But at the age of 34, 60 and 78, there were significant changes at the protein level. At the same time, according to the study report, these fluctuations may be associated with changes in the body as a whole.
It remains unclear how blood composition and proteins affect aging. But experiments on mice show that blood transfusions from young rodents have a positive effect on older ones. Interesting research, promising important discoveries, continues.
Earlier in February, it was reported that in Japan, scientists have developed a drug that can rejuvenate the body and stop the aging process. According to Makoto Nakanishi, professor at the Research Institute of Medicine at the University of Tokyo, its use may begin very soon – in 5-10 years.
