What if science could reverse the aging process? Follow researchers who decipher its mechanisms with the promise of finding the elixir of youth for longer and heathier lives!
Our biological clocks would therefore not tick down to an unknown date of programmed obsolescence anymore. Indeed, aging could be slowed down... or even reversed. This research sometimes starts looking like science fiction, and the idea is appealing to a growing number of billionaires in Silicon Valley, always on the lookout for promising investments. An elixir of youth, frugality, or a combination of the two: scientists are convinced that the anti-aging recipe is on the verge of discovery.
