This article shows the possibility of age reversal through a series of anti-aging properties called NAD+. "'we cant tell the difference between a two year old mouse versus a mouse that's three or four months old'" (Alice Park). With extensive testing on the genes of mice, "they're ready to test it on people" (Alice Park). Hopefully soon, the effects of aging will be a thing of the past.

This article states the possibility or "purging retired cells from the body...to undo the ravages of old age in a study that raises the prospect of new life-extending treatments" (Hannah Devlin). In this comment, the author states that the effects of aging can be reversed by cleaning out all of the dead or dying cells in the body. With further research, scientists will soon be able to run tests on humans.

This article explains how our "...genes get turned 'off' or 'on' over time" (Eric Mack). In this article, the author states how DNA damage in our cells can basically be "... reprogrammed to an embryotic stem cell-like state, effectively turning back the clock on aging" (Eric Mark). With further testing, "glycine supplements could one day become a powerful tool for life extension".

This article explains how by "twerking genes" (Karen Weintraub), scientists can turn old cells back into embryotic like cells. By being able to change genes in cells, researchers have opened up a whole new world of opportunities with aging and gene manipulation. As said by David Sinclair, a Harvard university geneticist, "' i do believe that epigenetic reprogramming is the ultimate way to reverse aging'" (Weintraub).

This article defines how scientists have been able to "rejuvenate" old, worn out organs in adult mice. From the experiments held at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Harvard Medical School, scientists have turned old, dying mice into new, healthy mice by rejuvenating their aging bodies.

This video explains three different ways we could potentially "cure" aging. While all of these alone could possibly help, the video highlights how, when using all of the strategies, we could potentially find the answer much faster.
