New Findings on How Many Daily Walking Steps Needed for Longevity Benefit

A meta-analysis of 15 studies involving nearly 50,000 people from four continents offers new insights into identifying the amount of daily walking steps that will optimally improve adults’ health and longevity – and whether the number of steps is different for people of different ages. The analysis represents an effort […]

“Healthspan” increasing even for people with common chronic conditions

Disability-free years mostly increased for men and women, but decreased for people with cognitive impairment. The number of healthy years a person lives is, on average, increasing even for people with common chronic conditions, according to a new study publishing March 15th in PLOS Medicine by Holly Bennett of Newcastle […]

Drug-resistant bacteria flaunt their curves

Researchers from Osaka University find that drug-resistant bacteria can be distinguished from non-resistant bacteria based on structural changes evident in electron microscope images with high accuracy using deep learning. If you’ve been hitting the gym and getting results, you know it’s time to strut your stuff; and it turns out […]

Senolytic Treatment Increases Circulating α-Klotho in Mice and Humans

Senescent cells accumulate with age. They are never a very sizable proportion of all cells in a tissue, but they causes a great deal of harm via their inflammatory signaling, changing the behavior of surrounding cells for the worse, and contributing to chronic inflammation throughout the body. All of the […]

Targeting Cellular Senescence as a Basis for Treating Osteoporosis

Senescent cells accumulate with age, causing tissue dysfunction throughout the body via their inflammatory secretions. One of those dysfunctions is the age-related imbalance in bone remodeling, favoring the osteoclasts that break down bone tissue at the expense of the osteoblasts that rebuild it. The result is osteoporosis, the characteristic loss […]

Furthering fat loss in the fasting response

Researchers led by Osaka University explore the relationship between autophagy and metabolism during fasting. The coming of spring harkens spring cleaning; a time to de-clutter your home and discard things that are no longer needed. In the body, a cellular process called autophagy occurs regularly to “de-clutter” our cells. Recently, […]

The Retina as a Potential Biomarker for Reduced Brain Matter

Researchers from the Department of Ophthalmology at the University Hospital Bonn (UKB) and Deutsches Zentrum für Neurodegenerative Erkrankungen (DZNE) have found a close connection between the dimensions of retinal structures and those of the brain. They report on this in the journal “Scientific Reports”. Their study results suggest that assessments […]
