Live Beyond 100 Years Old
« on: July 02, 2010, 03:38:55 PM »
By Victoria Gill
Science reporter, BBC News

US scientists have developed a way of predicting how likely a person is to live beyond the age of 100.

The breakthrough, described in the journal Science, is based on 150 genetic "signposts" found in exceptionally long-lived people.

The Boston team created a mathematical model, which takes information from these signposts to work out a person's chance of reaching 100.

It is based on the largest study of centenarians in the world.

This is a rare trait - only one in 6,000 people in industrialised countries reaches such a ripe old age. And 90% them are still disability free by the age of 93.

The researchers now think they have cracked the genetic secret of this longevity.

The team originally embarked on their study in 1995. Since then, they have scanned the genomes of 1,000 centenarians.

They identified genetic markers that are "most different" between centenarians and randomly selected individuals.

The research was led by Paola Sebastiani, a professor of biostatistics at Boston University, and Thomas Perls, associate professor of medicine, also at Boston University.

"We tested our model in an independent set of centenarians and achieved an accuracy of 77%," explained Professor Sebastiani.

"So out of 100 centenarians we could correctly predict the outcome of 77."

She said that the "23% error rate" indicated that, although "genetics is fundamental in exceptional longevity it's not the only thing".

"So there may be other factors like environment or other lifestyles that may help people live longer and healthier lives."

Suppress the apoptotic cycle and one can attain immortality.

Shall we talk about genetics?

Its nice to think of having long life....but think of the implications, its only fun if the people you love are still around.

Hehehe good point, Alice. That is why we--must be active in taking care of our parents, grandparents. As the eldest in my family; the eldest son of the eldest son (my father was the eldest son in his family), I have a personal responsibility to my family in Tagbilaran and in Valencia (my grandfather is in Valencia).

My grandfather is 83 (turning 84 this October) and is still very strong mentally, tho he is aging physically. And it is he who links all of my mother's side of the family together. He is the suppository of history, memories --in my mother's side. And it is his long life that has allowed us--his grandchildren and great-grand children to look forward to seeing every year. (Or for me, it is being able to talk to Lolo on the phone).

Which puts into context a point that you made; the importance of caring and remembering our family members who are older. Filial Piety.

In my honest opinion, it is something that should be upheld. Because without them, we would not even be here.
