American genetics believe that thanks to the latest discoveries in the future people will be able to live to 800 years. Study Group, led by the American geneticist Walter Longo, was ten times to extend the life of yeast.
Deleting from the genome of the fungus only two genes, and set him on a low-calorie diet, researchers have extended his life up to ten weeks. Typically, these organisms do not live more than a week.
Geneticists believe that this study directly applies to the aging of the human body. At the same time, scientists warn that until such time as a man could live to 800 years - is still very far away. However, suggest U.S. researchers, to extend life to 120 years will be in the foreseeable future.
