In a lab at Queensland University of Technology’s Cancer and Ageing Research Program there’s been a discovery that could change the way we live and when we die.
Researchers believe they’ve found the holy grail — the fountain of youth.
QUT Professor Dr Ken O’Byrne said he got “hairs on the back of my neck” when he saw the discovery.
“We may be able to take a 60-year-old’s cells and make them 40,” he said.
It’s an anti-ageing drug to stop the DNA wrecking ball which causes cancer, heart disease, cholesterol, arthritis and Alzheimer’s — which 50 per cent of people over the age of 80 have.
This drug could prevent them all, delay their onset or even reverse it.
