Extending your life, through genetics
New research in worms points to promise of living until 180
                           By Charlene Laino

June 10 - Imagine taking a drug that offers the promise of allowing
you to live to be 180 - without suffering such crippling
disabilities as arthritis or fatigue. That may no longer be the
stuff of science fiction, thanks to new studies that show that by
interfering with the process by which an insulin-like hormone binds
to proteins on cells' surfaces, it may be possible to double life
span. While the work has so far only be done in worms, there is
every reason to think it may be applicable to humans.
