Jeff Horseman got into journalism because he liked to write and stunk at math. He grew up in Vermont and he honed his interviewing skills as a supermarket cashier by asking Bernie Sanders “Paper or plastic?” After graduating from Syracuse University in 1999, Jeff began his journalistic odyssey at The Watertown Daily Times in upstate New York, where he impressed then-U.S. Senate candidate Hillary Clinton so much she called him “John” at the end of an interview. From there, he went to Annapolis, Maryland, where he covered city, county and state government at The Capital newspaper. Today, Jeff writes about anything and everything. Along the way, Jeff has covered wildfires, a tropical storm, 9/11 and the Dec. 2 terror attack in San Bernardino. If you have a question or story idea about politics or the inner workings of government, please let Jeff know. He’ll do his best to answer, even if it involves a little math.

Thanks To Gene Therapy
The dream of eternal youth in mice, researchers come closer to him

You can see in the Video: researchers to return thanks to Gene therapy, the aging in mice.

Scientists in Beijing have developed a new gene therapy, the effects the ageing might have. At least the corresponding results in experiments with mice, were found, as Professor Qu Jing recently confirmed in the Institute for Zoology at the Chinese Academy of Sciences: PROFESSOR QU, JING: “These mice show strength after six to eight months, an overall improved appearance and an improved grip, and especially approximately 25 % extended life expectancy.” Thus, the researchers are the answer to the question of how to live longer or how you can come to make the effects of aging reversed, perhaps a small step closer. Achieved their results by a, according to his own statement, absolutely new gene therapy. Only about 10,000 genes were examined to understand then backgrounds for cell aging. By disabling certain eye-catching genes could be made and then the interesting effects on mice. However, the scientists stressed in Beijing that would be far from this method to the people to try out.


Chinese researchers might be able, through Gene therapy, the aging process in mice to turn back. Whether the method also works in humans, but is still questionable.
