Do you want to live for hundreds of years? By tweaking our DNA, we could soon survive for hundreds of years. A genetically engineered organism that lives 10 times longer than normal has been created by scientists in California. But as always the hurdle is translating that into a Human being.
By deleting two genes within the yeast's genome and putting it on a calorie-restricted diet, scientists were able to extend the lifespan tenfold. Of cause it’s unrealistic to do the same on a human gene and expect the same results. But some scientists believe it can be done. But they are facing many difficulties and this is not including moral and ethical issues. One of the major concerns includes quality of the extended life period.
