Conversely selection in the frequency of lead to an increase in the frequency of mutations, which are advantageous. On this basis, all the genes should be with bad effects on survival or reproduction selection selection, he said. But very little if that were true, then there is no reason for individuals to deteriorate as they age .

‘We have found that people differ in their rates of aging, or senescence and that these differences are caused by genetic effects so that they are inherited,’said Alastair Wilson of the University of Edinburgh. ‘While the genetic effects we found entirely in accordance with the existing theory scientists had not been able except theory is correct, except in controlled laboratory experiments.. Long-term study The Wild by genetic differences AffectsDurable, harboring wildlife genetic differences influence how quickly they begin to show their age, according to the results of a long-term study reported online on 13 December in Current Biology, a Cell Press publication.

BMI is a measurement based on weight and height . Study, the intensity of aerobic exercise – in particular, the ratio of metabolic rate during a specific physical activity to a reference value of metabolic rate at rest. ‘This is good news for people can not seem active but can not seem to lose weight,’said Duck-chul Lee, the study’s lead researcher and physical activity epidemiologist in the Department of Sport Science at the University of South Carolina Arnold School of Public Health at Columbia. ‘You can keep less worry about your weight as long as you continue or increase your fitness levels. ‘.. In a study of 14,345 adult men, mostly white and middle or upper class, researchers found that:maintaining or improving fitness was associated with a lower death risk even after controlling for body mass index change.

One possible explanation for these results: About 90 % of men were either normal weight or overweight at baseline. Among obese people, changes in BMI have a significant effect on death risk. Thus, it is unclear whether these results obese severely obese people, Lee said. Read the rest of this entry »
