Genes snails hide in itself means that stops aging

According to The Courier Mail, the researchers examined a remarkable ability snails almost completely stop aging for a period of hibernation. Now experts want to find the genes that allow the snails to deal with over time. Perhaps the positive effects of these genes actually broadcast and on man.

Dr. Scott Cummins, a molecular biologist at the University of the Sunshine Coast, said: "In this way, some snails can prolong his life from age 3 to 23. Dragging it in person, the duration would increase from 70 years to nearly 500."

Now Dr. Cummings attempts to identify genes and neurohormones, which cause sleep snails known as sleepy state in the summer (the snail just sleep for a few months, when in hot climates temperatures reach peak values).

Since human genes by almost 50% similar to the genes of snails, it is not impossible that the people there are "dormant genes." In theory, this discovery will bring money to slow aging and the introduction to a state of suspended animation. Hence, organs for transplant, will survive longer, and people will forget about age-related diseases such as cancer and Alzheimer's disease.
