Drinking Two to Three Cups of Coffee Daily Is Linked With a Longer Lifespan

According to a new study, drinking two to three cups of coffee a day is linked with a longer lifespan and a lower risk of cardiovascular disease. Drinking two to three cups of coffee a day is associated with a longer lifespan and a lower risk of cardiovascular disease compared with avoiding coffee. This is …

Researchers found that reaching the basic aerobic fitness goals could reduce a person's risk of all-cause mortality significantly, though reductions were more pronounced for those that managed to double - or even quadruple - those metrics

You need to exercise over TWICE as much as guidelines recommend to maximize your lifespan

Physical activity guidelines laid out by U.S. health officials – markers that a vast majority of Americans are not reaching – are still inadequate for a person who wants to maximize their lifespan, a new study finds. Researchers from Harvard University, in Cambridge, Massachusetts, found that reaching guidelines set by the Department of Health and …

Visualizing the Relationship Between Cancer and Lifespan

Is it Possible to Bring Back Extinct Animal Species? View a higher resolution version of this infographic. Humanity has been tinkering with natural life for thousands of years. We’ve become remarkably good at it, too—to date, we’ve modified bacteria to produce drugs, created crops with built-in pesticides, and even made a glow-in-the-dark dog. However, despite …

Gene Regulation Might Be the Key to a Longer Lifespan

Researchers discovered that long-lived organisms often exhibit high expression of genes involved in DNA repair, RNA transport, and cellular skeleton organization and low expression of genes involved in inflammation and energy consumption. Researchers from the University of Rochester who are interested in longevity genetics propose new targets to fight aging and age-related disorders. Mammals that age …
