Christopher Kennedy — Top Box Foods — Year Round Access To Nutritious Foods, In Food Insecure Areas

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, food, life extension

Mr. — Chairman, Joseph P. Kennedy Enterprises — Our discussion starts out on U.S. food insecurity, but journeys into the topics of aging, as well as regeneration research at University of Chicago’s MBL.


A “food desert” is an area that has limited access to affordable and nutritious food, and the designation considers both the type and quality of food available, as well as the accessibility of the food through the size and proximity of the food stores.

Unexpected discovery about stem cell immortality study

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, life extension

“An exciting outcome of this research is that it definitively shows the critical protective element at chromosome ends is the telomere DNA loop,” said Associate Professor Cesare.

“This likely explains why telomere length regulates ageing; cells must need long enough telomeres to make the DNA loops and this becomes difficult as cells age.”


Telomeres are the protective caps at chromosome ends. In adult cells, telomeres shorten each time a cell divides and this contributes to ageing and cancer. Pluripotent stem cells, however, are specialised cells that exist in the earliest days of development. These pluripotent cells do not age and have the ability to turn into any type of adult cell.

Election posters in Stuttgart with our advisory board member Aubrey de Grey for the state election in Baden-Württemberg on march 14th 2021

Posted by in categories: biotech/medical, life extension

The Partei für Gesundheitsforschung (German Party for Health Research) demands, that the state should invest about 5 billion Euro per year additionally into biomedical research to hasten the development of effective medicine against the diseases of old age.

Here is our election program in German: https://parteifuergesundheitsforschung.de/wahlprogramm-der-p…erttemberg.

Please also consider donating money to the party, so that we can participate in more future elections. To participate in this years federal election in 12 states we would need e.g. at least about 50.000 Euro and unfortunately the party has almost no money at the moment. Election campaigns are a very good way to do advocacy for our cause and we can reach a lot of people this way, that we otherwise wouldn’t reach.

Camera Designed to Reveal the Deepest Secrets of Our Universe Captures the Southern Pinwheel Galaxy in Glorious Detail

Posted by in category: space

The Spiral of the Southern Pinwheel The Dark Energy Camera (DECam), which was originally designed for the Dark Energy Survey, has captured one of the deepest images ever taken of Messier 83, a spiral galaxy playfully known as the Southern Pinwheel. Built by the US Department of Energy, DECam is mounted on the Víctor M. Blanco 4-meter Telescope at the Cerro Tololo Inter-American Observatory (CTIO), a Program of NSF’s NOIRLab.
