Could We Soon Find Out EXACTLY How Long We’ll Live? Scientists Accurately Work Out Lifespan Of Worms By Analysing Their Cells -- Daily Mail
* Scientists analysed looking at the bursts of activity in mitochondria
* Mitrochondria are the parts of a cell that generates its energy
* The flashes in mitochondria caused by free radicals predicted lifespan
* Findings suggest organism’s lifespan is predictable in early adulthood
Fortune tellers may soon be out of the job.
Scientists have found a way to accurately predict lifespan in worms – a breakthrough that could one day be used to predict how long a human would live.
The secret, they claim, is in looking at the bursts of activity in mitochondria, a part of the cell which generates its energy.
