Antiaging Research and Medical Science
There are many who identify antiaging research as simply cosmetic; at the same time there are serious medical research programs which work toward finding the right weapon to fight aging; not only from a cosmetic point of view but also from a health point of view. A breakthrough in this aspect would not only help in improving looks, but also slowing down diseases and the dilapidating effects of old age.
Stem Cells as a Medical Breakthrough
Stem cells are cells that come from the umbilical chord of a mammal. These cells have a wonderful way of ?becoming? whatever it is you would want them to turn into. There have been many research studies carried out on the regeneration capacities of these cells with some very encouraging results. In many instances it has been found that stem cells can successfully regenerate tissue which has been destroyed due to accidents or diseases, including brain tissue. This breakthrough is almost a miracle.
Applications of Stem Cells in Antiaging Research
Antiaging research can benefit greatly from this break-though in medicine. The options can be simply limitless. It can be to regenerate skin of course, but it also has tremendous implications with regard to the possibility of regenerating say a lost eye, or muscle tissue of the face among other things. Things that today are taken care of by intricate and expensive plastic surgery can be replaced by totally regenerating the missing tissue/ organ.
Antiaging Research and Longevity
Besides the cosmetic aspect which actually gained prominence because of the high commercialization of appearance today, antiaging research will have tremendous benefits in helping delay organ malfunction by keeping them younger. As the organs age, they start giving trouble but if stem cells or other research such as Vitamin K applications are successful, then a person?s longevity will increase. Their vitality and health will also be less liable to suffer from aging problems.
Hope in The Future
Millions of dollars are pumped into antiaging research and hopefully sooner than later people will learn how to use nature to their advantage. Many do not mind dying, but they really seem to mind old age. If people could stay in their physical condition of a 30 year old and live till 65 ? 70 years, it would be a dream-come-true. This is a lot to hope for today, but with every step that medical science makes we find ourselves closer to realizing the dream. It may take a decade or two, but we will definitely get there.
