The Telegraph has reported that they found the gene that controls ageing. In a nutshell, as cells regenerate they do it a little bit worse/wrong each time... leading to ageing. But the crazy scientist guys think that finding this gene:
"is the first step to understanding why people age. Once we have a full understanding we should be able to manipulate it in a manner to influence how someone ages."
So go me! Here is an artists impression of what I will be like in the year 2062.
