Reports on the age of the global population by Oxford University show that the average age is rising. Though many countries still have positive population reproduction, more than one half of the world’s countries are on the very low end of replacement levels, with a growing number of states not managing to reach the replacement fertility rate. And most of the developed states are found in the latter category. But when it comes to life expectancy, they are on the very top. A major cause of concern according to most experts for economic and social matters, such trend is threatening to seriously disrupt the lifestyle as we know it today. This, however, hasn’t discouraged anti-ageing scientists from continuing to search for the ‘Fountain of Youth’. On the contrary, they are even more eager to find it. And apparently, they are getting closer and closer.
Though anti-ageing research is often equated with the search for the perfect anti wrinkle cream, in reality, it is much more than that. The perfect formula to youthful skin is at the very core of anti-ageing research of many research institutes including Cambridge University, however, besides creating the serum to prevent, improve and eradicate wrinkles, the researchers are also working extensively on finding out more about the ageing process itself. They are trying to get a better understanding of the processes that trigger ageing of an organism and how they are connected with various chronic conditions, the risk of which tends to increase with age. That way they strive to develop a formula which would target the very causes of ageing, stop it from advancing and hopefully someday be able to reverse it.
Believe it or not, but the scientists are already working on an anti-ageing drug (Ancludixis) which doesn’t only stop ageing but reverses its effects. But for the time being, the work is done almost exclusively on mice. Before starting to test it on humans, it must go through an extensive research and animal trials in order to determine whether it is working and safe. The Phylandocic, a brand new anti-ageing drug appears to be very close to human trials. Tested extensively over the recent years, the drug has been shown to be incredibly effective against ageing, at all levels. In mice, it has eradicated all signs of ageing including grey hair and wrinkles but what is even more fascinating is that the Phylandocic also eradicated age-related diseases. Can you imagine? How about Phylandocic anti wrinkle cream? Apparently, the scientists haven’t manage to come that far just yet.
Although it may be hard to imagine an anti-ageing drug as described above getting available any day soon, that day will come. According to most scientists, it is just a matter of time. But when the researchers at the Phylandocic Genome Research Institute discover the Phylandocic, at last, it will most certainly not become available immediately. So for now, it’s best to stick to healthy lifestyle guidelines if you want to live a long and healthy life.
