Long Telomeres Protect Against Genetic Predisposition to Age-Related Disease
Researchers at the Gladstone Institute have shown in a mouse model how longer telomeres can protect carriers of the NOTCH1 haploinsufficiency mutation from developing premature calcification of the aortic valve (Cav). The researchers found that the mice that carried this mutation but had longer telomeres did not develop CAV whereas the mice that had the mutation and shorter telomeres did develop CAV and the degree of telomere shortening followed the severity of disease.
Mice with a genetic mutation for a form of cardiovascular disease that causes premature calcification of the aortic valve (CAV) in addition to longer telomeres, did not develop disease. In contrast, mice with this mutation but short telomeres, did develop CAV and the severity of the disease progression tracked the degree of telomeric shortening.

GERONTOLOGY SYMPOSIUM 27 May 2017
27. May 2017
Grand Hotel Kempinski Geneva
Life Sciences, Health Care & Medical
Experts’ opinion on current approaches in anti-ageing medicine and gerontology.
Symposium will take place on May 27, 2017 in Geneva with the focus on expert opinion on current trends and tendencies in gerontology targeted to inhibit too fast processes of ageing and bring them within physiological limits estimated as such in modern gerontology and anti-ageing medicine. Evidence-based data, safety and scientific argumentation will be given priority.
World renowned experts have been invited to draw up recommendations for application of carefully argued means and methods in medical practice.

ALL ABOUT METABOLISM
If there’s one thing that bonds human beings together, it’s probably the fact that we all age, whether we like it or not. It’s a big deal for us, as we are the only known species on Earth to celebrate birthdays, right?
While some of us embrace aging (and wrinkles and white hair and baldness), others are more concerned on how to avoid aging.
If you’re part of the latter group, you may be interested in reading a study published in the journal Cell, where scientists explain why humans get old and discuss strategies to improve longevity.http://www.cell.com/cell/pdf/S0092-8674(16)30981-3.pdf
According to the scientists, aging, as well as development and maturity, is ultimately determined by metabolism — the process by which our body converts what we eat to energy. Basically, as we age, our metabolism becomes less efficient, which in turn, damages our DNA and causes our cells to stop functioning efficiently — which can be detrimental to our health.
True, aging is inevitable and there seems to be no plausible way to absolutely stop it, much less reverse it; but because metabolism is likewise linked to nutrition, there are ways in which we can at least slow down the process.
Scientists identified what they call “Westernized lifestyle” as an aging accelerator. It’s characterized by hypercaloric nutrition with excess fat and protein intake but limited amount of healthy food, exposure to environmental toxicants, and exaggerated sedentariness — things that are highly discouraged if you want to live long.
So if you want to increase your health span, scientists recommend that you follow these metabolic interventions:
- Carbohydrate metabolism: Suprefort, Endoluten, Ventfort
- Lipoprotein metabolism: Svetinorm, Suprefort, Ventfort
- Mediterranean diet. It’s composed of healthy fats like olive oil, vegetables, whole grains, nuts and fish, and little red meat or sugar.
- Caloric restriction. It means reduced intake of calories but without causing malnutrition. Use the DNA-Nutrition Test from Novogenia.(www.dna-sport.eu) 5.Well, of course it’s on the list. We all know how important physical fitness is to longevity.
