Scientists Find a Way to Make People Live for Hundreds of Years

Share

It can soon become possible for humans to live up to 800 years with the latest scientific breakthrough.

Researchers at the University of Southern California said that they managed to extend the lifespan of a strain of yeast fungus that can live 10 times longer than normal.

Valter Longo, the leading researcher of the study removed two genes RAS2 and SCH9 within the yeast's genome, that is responsible for aging in yeast and cancer in humans and put the baker's yeast on a restricting diet that extended its lifespan enormously.

Longo claimed that in spite of the difference between humans and yeast cells, this method is applicable to the same breakthrough in science of human longevity. He also said that though they were far from making people live till 800 years, it is quite possible to improve people's health and extend human lifespan to 120 years now.

The upper limit of human lifespan is now considered to be 125 years with just a few people managing to live that long.

Robin Holliday, a British gerontologist said that the claim that the possibility of humans to live up to 1,000 years may come from the future technology, where vulnerable parts of the body would be replaced and this would make a person live even longer.

Longo said that his scientific experiment proved that aging is genetically programmed and human lifespan can be altered to make people live much longer.

So, here I am, first time finding this little forum thread, and after reading a variety of intriguing (however ridiculous) points of view on the subject, I have to say that this is an amazing scientific discovery, and that should be praised. Kudos to the dedicated men and women who have committed so much effort and time to learning more about our world and how it works. For the pulpit that seems to have been erected, I ask this: has there been a single moment in your existence when you actually THOUGHT before you spoke, or are you so conditioned by your mind-controlling masters that you have completely abandoned the practice of using your brains? There is absolutely NOTHING in this post, other than your babbling and run-on rants, that mentions the Almighty, even once. It amazes me how many of you refuse to consider ... even for a moment ... that the very reason we are capable of achieving such monumental accomplishments could be thanks to Him? The hilarious irony is that, at the end of the day, theological fanatics know no more about God's plan than an atheist. It's HIS plan. Therefore, since you have NO idea what He's up to, you have NO idea how He plans to accomplish His objectives. I still see this catastrophic schism occur again and again, the first time during the discussion of creation vs. evolution when I was in school. Did none of you fire-and-brimstone armchair ministers ever abandon your arrogant, hypocritical belittling of others long enough to think that God did create us, and used evolution to do it? Fact stands as thus: If God intends for something to happen, it will, and by any means He chooses ... whether you agree with His methods or not. It's His plan, not yours. Stop trying to pretend that you know anything about it.

history is starting to repeat it self ha ha ha ha ha ha! think about it... the old testement stated that people lived far longer then thay do today( about 800 yers or more) hummmmm... look it up... and the hole idea of genetic altering has been around since the stone ages. the sumereins started genetic work with dogs so that counts right..... ok well the double helix shows up in there text...ok it was stated there gods created us from genetic testing.... a story more then 10000 years old Its only now that government has given people the chances to do the things we do today, sure they lead us to believe that bathing in feical infestead water would cure a venereal disease, or that lead glazed pots were ok to drink out of and cook with, or that plastic is safe, and globle warming is our fault and has nothing to do with the fact that our sun has the ultimate say over us, if you ask me, its not a question of, if it can be done? but more along the lines of who are you doing it for.... surely not for me. and as far as what this all means is that.. if they had this type genetic "stuff" right now, your childrens childern might see the benifit but there is no "holy grail" so bible thumpers need not put there word in on the hole "we found the holy grail" crap cause that is just myth cause as far as the holy grail, that was just a reactor core"WHAT" for a green goo machine. oh yes how do you thing the jews servied that long in a desert, the egyptians where pissed when they woke up and found out not only did there workers dipped but they stoled there green goo machine, reactor core in tow, hummmmm radiation posioning anyone, DNA has a hard time dealing with that too i take it we still havent found that right thing to do with this power but atleast its cool ..............sorry about the rant i just hate when there is nothing to do on a monday morning at 1 am opp daylight savings time lol midnight

//57,Pal youre wrong im sorry but once i read youre statement i realized that u are bitter in ways unknown to me but i can tell you this Science yes youre precious science has proven that no happening could have made the universe that it was created in 3 miliseconds"the blink of an eye" they found rocks that they examined and realized that it only took that long that i was created in that time span and jesus never killed nobody where you got that was beyond me but how can u believe something "YOU" heard or read that was so long ago maybe what u said 60 years after jesus birth pft dude take a look around life is beutiful and we are in a test a test of all to see which side you will chose ever see something in the corner of youre vision u couldnt explain? u ever feel like someone is watching you? ever check out aura machines and how if someone loses a hand or finger how its still there? holy spirit guy you soul there is darkness just like there is light in this life pls dont fail and have faith in the son of god that chose to give up his life get whipped and beaten thinking about you the whole time? how u might change. how this might spark an understanding that life's not so simple that there is truly more?how did jesus know god so well? ever think those years when he was gone he was in heaven with his father?getting instucted and shown who how that he should be? like us? GL man i hope this sparks hope in youre life and god bless.

wow that would be nice to live up 800 years, but living that long would cause you not to move that well. As you get older your bones will weaken, and just as //68 said people with chronic illness will suffer greatly and would want there life to be over with. Even though you would get to live that long, everybody you ever knew would go past your and in to the coffin. You`ll just see generations just go by, and if every person would live that long many people would populate the earth and life to go unbalanced, it would also cause pollution because of so much humans living and consuming, everything then would go extinct. So its better to just die when your time comes.

I love the idea of living for 800 years think about what you would see in the ammount of time. Boring? You must be boring to think living 800 years would get boring, and if you did get bored.

The idea may seem attractive,but in fact it's not a brilliant idea to live hundreds of years.I am saying this because of many reasons.First of all,it could,of course,be very boring,espesially if someone has a chronic illness.In addition,we have to take into consideraton the fact that the world would be overcrowded and also we have to accept that all of us will come to death at some time,because this is how it is!It's the law of nature and god.We shouldn't come against this.All things considered,I believe it would be best if scientists didn't meddle with our lifespans...

I'd love to live a few hundred years. If not by this method, stem cells should do the trick (and keep you youthful, to boot!). And, if overpopulation bothers you, send me to the moon. I'll work on greenhouse projects, I don't care. It should be the decision of the individual, not the religious community.

man you religous people kill me, and all the talk about gods law yall are nuts there is no god i believe jesus christ was a real man but not the son of god. most of you religous people probably don't know that the bible wasn't even thought of untill 60 somethin years after jesus died. and you also didn't know from the age of 18-26 give or take, that jesus is nowhere to be found and when he was an adolescent he killed people yes i said it jesus was a murderer. The only laws of the universe is physics and quantum physics maybe yall should try to be open minded and make an effort to learn something new. if you don't want to live 800 years i doubt anyone will make you. but leave me out of you conversation i will make my own decision. i don't need to hear some of the bullsh*t that yall are talkin. religion is fading people it is the stone age way of thinkin there is more to life than trying to please a god that doesn't exist. try pleasing yourself.

Some of you have the whole wrong idea about succeeding or advancement of, improving genetics to performe at an excellent level "more sophisticated communication between body, and Mind. The body would need to maintenanced constantly from something similiar to how a white blood cell repairs.
To me it seems they would need to input microchips of some sort to keep the brain focused, and on track of constantly repairing and upgrading the body as it is in use. The Faster the mind can read a problem within the body, such as a copmuter anaylsis all sorts of thing. The quicker the fix or correction is made within the body, and the quality or durability of the finialized job fucntion the body is able to produce from key location's in the brain. Advancement is inevidable thing will constantly find a shorty or easier rout on its own, its like a process of life to gradually become more efficient. But all those doubters out there or skeptics are being pointed at and laughted. Simply because of "change" . As a living being "mankind" change has always perfected it self from Knowledge or the ablility to learn

Maybe these very popular sites should not give us enthusiasts the space to voice our opinions. We are being given an oppertunity to access and review the latest news in the scientific community.

I am puzzled as to why there are so many religious comments on this site! This is science people! The basis for which we uncover and decypher the ways and terms we must exist. Religion is not an answer in a response to sciences methods of prooving what is true and tangeble. Todays religions are the prospective governments that simply missed the boat but were left with the tools required to mass an income! These tools are FEAR and UNCERTAINTY.

In response to Apocolyptic and Atomic references I say this. Before you mention Atomic Warfare please look into what is required to fire an Atomic Weapon. Theres alot more than a few codes and switches that have to be flipped. Atomic Weapons can only be fired at specific times of the year, when an accurate and very mathmatical measurement can be taken to achieve critical mass. These arent simple rockets people.
Not made in Hollywood.

Apocolypse? You can help that happen by taking up drinking, smoking or generally damaging yourself in anyway you please. Theres your apocolypse. However, the rest of us will carry on about our bussiness, learning and exercising our right to live without fear of uncertain doom. If you're reference to Apocolypse is in regards to a meteroid or asteroid collision I hate to dissappoint you.

The Sol System (our galaxy) is HIGHLY stable. 0.00000002 to 1. Those are the odds of a collision, approximately 1 every 100,000 years, and distance required needs to be close to 15km accross to give an extinctive effect. There are 50 of these spotted in our system. And even if we do get hit, with or with out you and me, life itself will find its own way.

Finally, the article. I am impressed with their findings. I think what they will achieve with this technology in the near future, will be more for e.g the assistance of people who have to take rejection medication which lowers your life span by 10% approximately, or several other medications and proceedures that have a similar repocussions.
It could be an answer to a poor mans arm transplant, if the potential proceedure outruns cellular duplication.

So no i dont believe their intent will be to remove the gene, just dampen its affect. Living that long, even for me, leaves me short of breath.

This is a terrible approach in science. If prevails, it will be biased towards the elites; rich, famous, and the powerful, hence, huge social problems. Second, it will certainly throw the human existence out of balanced by effecting the evolution process and possible genetic diseases. I think playing around and interfering with human creation will do more damage than good.

Actually, it is against nature to eat processed foods with no trace minerals and vitamins. God intended for mankind to eat real food, not man-made food with flavorings and coloring agents that lead to disease. I know it's hard, downright impossible in our age due to exposure to unclean air and food. Our best bet is to eat kosher and 100 percent organic all the time. Even doing that is virtually impossible because of crossing over and carrying back and forth from person to person. We should live in the range of 115-125 years. Diet is the single biggest factor regarding longevity. Even bigger than genetics. Exercise is key also. If you die before 100, excluding natural distasters, accidental drowning, chocking, etc. and murders/killings, it is almost certain it is our fault. Diseases of the body should not exist, period!

I think, that in my opinion, all these religious comments are a waste of space on this article web page. Even Armageddon is way too fictional. If you look at society, one of the major things that holds the human race back is its false belief in religion. More crime and sin has been done in the name of religion than anything else in the world. Just think, these religious people consider it a sin for their children, or even themselves to watch a film with adult content in it, yet they hand their children a Bible and tell them to read to their hearts content. The Bible has more adult content in it than anything else you could give a child. Murder, rape, theft, and violence. It just doesn't make any sense to me why religion will eventually hold us back from using the knowledge from great discoveries like these........

hmm.. this discovery sounds great but unfortunately,, for sure God will not let this succeed.. humans are punished to experience death,,, and to think, living here on earth for 200, 300 more years with so many problems, no one would like to endure all of that,, still it would be better if we'll spend almost a hundred years here on earth, and eternity in heaven,,

Ah, this may not be a brilliant idea, I'm not exactly a fan of death, but some people who are a threat to society living that long... think how messed up the world would get. Also just because it applies to yeast... it might be a bit hopeful to think it can apply to humans. As for replacing organs of humans… if everyone is living for such a long time, where will you find the spare organs? If scientists develop artificial organs... wouldn’t human beings become mere fragments of themselves... it would be like becoming a zombie... or a sort of Frankenstein. Interesting idea, if successful then good luck with the controversy. I personally believe armageddon is coming before this is put into practice... but thats just me :p

That is very far from the truth...hehehe we all gonna die,,living in that very long life span like 300, 400 and above is not living with the reality of natural life...for god designed each of us a natural life...those that advocates this scientific idea's is afraid at the death of hell

This is one of many examples of careless reporting by media regarding science. The media almost always touts a small yet important discovery as a breakthrough if they can attach a sensationalist headline to it. This article vastly underestimates the complexity of the genetics of an eukaryotic organism. This is an important discovery, but it is barely the beginning. It is irresponsible to portray discoveries as something other than what they are, as stepping stones. Every once in a while a truly significant finding is published that deserves a headline like this one, this is not one of those cases. Journalists who write articles like this are doing a huge disservice to the public and to science.

Oh, I and really like your pesimistic mood, and be careful with that B word, it might scare people to death.

well that would be great, cause I always wanted to see how people would leave 200, 300 and more years from now. unfortunately, I won't live that long, so I'll just have to speculate on that... though I think an atomic war will destroy the human kind and that would be it!
