Depression Could Severely Increase Epigenetic Aging

Depression can certainly take its toll on a variety of physical and mental processes, so it’s no surprise that major depression often coincides with a shortened lifespan.  Now scientists are finding that there may be more to this link than just purely an unfortunate coincidence. According to a new study, major depression disorder (MDD) may … Continue reading Depression Could Severely Increase Epigenetic Aging

Epigenetic Marks From Parents Could Influence Embryo Development and Future Health

DNA is the blueprint from which most living organisms are built. It makes up the genes that carry the distinctive characteristics and information that determine physical appearance and health, and it makes everybody unique. At the beginning of life, human embryos inherit genes from both their mother and father, and although the actual genes cannot … Continue reading Epigenetic Marks From Parents Could Influence Embryo Development and Future Health

A Super Brief and Basic Explanation of Epigenetics for Total Beginners

Epigenetics, as a simplified definition, is the study of biological mechanisms that will switch genes on and off. What does that mean? Well, if you are new to this whole thing, we first need a quick crash course in biochemistry and genetics before learning exactly what is epigenetics: Cells are fundamental working units of every … Continue reading A Super Brief and Basic Explanation of Epigenetics for Total Beginners

Prof. Fritz-Albert Popp: “We know today that man, essentially, is a being of light.”

Biophysics is the bridge between biology and physics. Dr. Fritz-Albert Popp invented the Biophoton theory of light. In 1996, Dr. Popp founded the International Institute of Biophysics in Neuss, Germany. This institute is a worldwide network of biologist, chemists, medical researchers, physicists and other scientists at 14 universities and governmental research institutes. Fritz-Albert Popp (born … Continue reading Prof. Fritz-Albert Popp: “We know today that man, essentially, is a being of light.”

Slow metabolism linked to longevity

When we use the word “metabolism,” we are usually referring to resting metabolic rate, which is the amount of energy (calories) that the body requires per day for its basic functions at rest. Most people believe that it is desirable to raise their metabolism, because they will burn more calories and consequently lose weight. Having … Continue reading Slow metabolism linked to longevity

Exercise Guards White Blood Cells Against Aging

Studies have shown that exercise can help ward off heart disease and cancer, and now new research shows that the reason why may be found within cells themselves. Endurance athletes had longer telomeres -- DNA at the tips of chromosomes that protect the cell -- in their white blood cells than healthy, nonsmoking adults who … Continue reading Exercise Guards White Blood Cells Against Aging
