Scientists get the first peek at genes in the act of ageing  

It’s long been accepted logic that one of the keys to living longer is to refrain from overeating — the reason being that if you overeat, you get fat; and if you get fat, you don’t live as long as you otherwise would.

It’s considered an established fact in the case of humans, and it’s also been proven over and over in laboratory experiments with rodents.

But now there’s been a scientific breakthrough regarding what causes premature ageing and therefore a shortened lifespan.

Scientists have for the first time actually seen cells in the process of ageing. And what they’ve found is that the less you eat, the slower you’ll age — irrespective of weight gain.
