Easing the brakes on the "immortality" enzyme could slow aging

Most of us accept that aging and eventually death are just the inevitable prices we pay for being alive in the first place – but maybe there’s a way to skip out on the bill. Anti-aging research has long focused on DNA structures known as telomeres, which have been directly linked to cell longevity. Now scientists at Arizona State University have discovered a new way to potentially supercharge the mechanism, which may help keep this “molecular clock” – and by extension, ourselves – running better for longer…
