RE-POST: “Sound waves convert stem cells into bone in regenerative breakthrough” — RMIT

“Regrowing or replacing bone lost to disease is tricky and often painful. In a new study Australian researchers have found a relatively simple way to induce stem cells to turn into bone cells quickly and efficiently, using high-frequency sound waves.” — Read on newatlas.com/medical/sound-waves-stem-cells-bone/ YES! I’ve been writing about sound tech the past couple years,Continue reading “RE-POST: “Sound waves convert stem cells into bone in regenerative breakthrough” — RMIT”

Maximizing Human Regenerative Processes, Part 4: Deep Learning Biology To Realize Immortality

The pieces necessary to live indefinitely are already in place. Each of us inhabits a powerful vessel, the human body, with vast potential. After all, look at how far life has come. We can continue knowing ourselves even better in the 21st century and beyond, and appreciate the fascinating intricacies of our composition. This PartContinue reading “Maximizing Human Regenerative Processes, Part 4: Deep Learning Biology To Realize Immortality”

The Longevity List — What’s Working For Me

1. Experiencing Timelessness. Be on a timeless scale. Live as if life is all. Clocks, schedules and dates are merely tools. Have an open-ended mindset. 2. Meditation, Affirmation & Prayer. Believe and re-program, say what you want, atone, give thanks, purify, connect to outer and inner cosmos. 3. Stellar Self-Care & Self-Talk. Enjoy the maintenanceContinue reading “The Longevity List — What’s Working For Me”

Using Augmented Reality For Medical Testing

The next humane frontier for medical and scientific testing is Augmented Reality or Virtual Reality. As AR becomes more realistic thanks to companies like Meta (Oculus) and Microsoft (HoloLens), this will indeed become viable. That means advanced simulations and no further need for live subjects. Not only would the tech be cruelty-free, it would alsoContinue reading “Using Augmented Reality For Medical Testing”

On Cellular Immortality: Reverse Transcriptase Lengthens Telomeres

First of all, Telomeres are located at the ends of our chromosomes, coiled DNA in nuclei, and contain repeated nucleotide sequences. They are the end cap data sequence and lengthen in response to cell division. How so? An enzyme dubbed “telomerase” aka “telomere terminal transferase” cues the repeat. I say ‘dubbed’ because in a seaContinue reading “On Cellular Immortality: Reverse Transcriptase Lengthens Telomeres”

Re-post: Biologists unravel pathway for cancer cells to become immortal | Iowa Now

Biologists at the University of Iowa have unraveled a second pathway by which cancer cells multiply without end. Using baker’s yeast as a model, the biologists explored Alternative Lengthening of Telomeres, a second pathway that cancer cells use to become immortal. — Read on now.uiowa.edu/2021/03/biologists-unravel-pathway-cancer-cells-become-immortal ME: Let’s get this straight — renegade Cancer cells becomeContinue reading “Re-post: Biologists unravel pathway for cancer cells to become immortal | Iowa Now”

Learning From Nature: Using Digestive Processes For Waste Management

How doth the little crocodile Improve his shining tail, And pour the waters of the Nile On every golden scale! How cheerfully he seems to grin, How neatly spreads his claws, And welcomes little fishes in, With gently smiling jaws! ~ The Crocodile by Lewis Carroll “How doth,” indeed. The crocodile has a powerful digestiveContinue reading “Learning From Nature: Using Digestive Processes For Waste Management”

Longevity⁺ Corner: What Is An NRF2 & What Foods Does It Like?

NRF2 stands for Nuclear factor-erythroid factor 2-related factor 2 —say that 10 times fast — and is a “DNA transcription factor” protein that regulates and enhances how genes are expressed by binding to it. It’s a complex other world inside the human body, yet perhaps we can understand better by comparing with the outer worldContinue reading “Longevity⁺ Corner: What Is An NRF2 & What Foods Does It Like?”

Molecule Of The Month: NAD+ Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide

NAD is a coenzyme found in all cells. And coenzymes function as catalysts to mediate metabolic reactions. For some great detail on the function of NAD+ within the body’s energy pathways, visit the linked caption above. Generally speaking, NAD shuttles electrons or energy “as a way to carry stored energy to produce ATP.” So, thisContinue reading “Molecule Of The Month: NAD+ Nicotinamide Adenine Dinucleotide”
