Have scientists discovered the elixir of youth? Hormone 'extends lifespan by 40%, protecting the immune system against the ravages of age'


From the Daily Mail:
It is the Holy Grail of health research, discovering the key to help people live longer. Now scientists believe they may be one step closer. 
A team at Yale School of Medicine have identified a hormone, produced by the thymus glad, extends lifespan by 40 per cent.  
Their findings reveal increased levels of the hormone, known as FGF21, protects the immune system against the ravages of age. 
Researchers said the study could have implications in the future for improving immune function in the elderly, for obesity, and for diseases such as cancer and type 2 diabetes. 
When it is functioning normally, the thymus produces new T cells for the immune system. 
But with age, the gland becomes fatty and loses its ability to produce the vital cells. 
This loss of new T cells in the body is one cause of increased risk of infections and certain cancers in the elderly. 
Researchers led by Vishwa Deep Dixit, professor of comparative medicine and immunobiology at Yale, studied transgenic mice with elevated levels of FGF21.

I find amazing as people like us, aware of what's happening, the danger in which our civilization is now, the total unawareness of the rest of the world, watch as life continues undisturbed, with scientists searching for ways to extend and improve the quality of life, and other marvels of the civilized world develop. All the while the NWO mafia is trying to decimate earth population by 90% so Gaia can survive ...
