Los Angeles, California (Scicasts) — Why do some people remain physically and mentally healthy into their 80s and beyond, while others age faster and suffer serious diseases decades earlier? New research may produce a new way to predict health declines and potentially to intervene to delay them.

Keeping gut bacteria in balance could help delay age-related diseases, UCLA study finds

Researchers Identify Key Molecular Components Linking Circadian Rhythms and Cell Division Cycles

Researchers at the University of Cincinnati have identified key molecular components linking circadian rhythms and cell division cycles in Neurospora crassa, providing insights that could lead to improved disease treatments and drug delivery.

SIGNIFICANTLY MUTATED GENES ACROSS 12 CANCER TYPES. 127 genes found to be significantly mutated in 12 cancer types are shown organized by gene pathway. The percentage of samples that contain the mutated form of the gene is shown for each of the cancer types. The highest percentage for each cancer type is shown in bold text.

Our genes may have a more elevated moral sense than our minds do, according to a new study of the genetic effects of happiness. They can, it seems, reward us with healthy gene activity when we’re unselfish — and chastise us, at a microscopic level, when we put our own needs and desires first.

Looking to Genes for the Secret to Happiness

People whose happiness was based on a sense of higher purpose and service to others had gene markers indicating possible better long-term health.
