Growth Hormone Receptor Gene Mutation Discovered – Anti Aging News

A new study has discovered a genetic mutation on growth hormone receptors that they believe could expand our lifespan by an average of up to 10 years.

A new study led by Prof. Gil Atzmon head of the Laboratory of Genetics and Epigenetics of Aging and Longevity at the University of Haifa and his team have discovered a genetic mutation on growth hormone receptors that they believe could expand our lifespan by an average of up to 10 years. "We were aware before that variants involved with genetic paths related to the growth hormone are also associated with longevity. Now we have found a specific variant whose presence or absence is directly connected to it," Prof. Atzmon explained.

According to other research its well known that IGF-1 (insulin-like growth factor-1) contributes to longevity as well as associated with HGH and other growth hormones.

From theSciencegroup in the journalScience Advances,scientists have discovered a variation in genes that changes hormones in men that extend their life-span. Professor Nir Barzilai at Einstein, compared 3 groups of 100-year-old men from around the world with 100 American Jewish men with a control group of 70-year olds.

They discovered that men without Exon 3 on growth hormone receptor genes were more likely to live up to 10 years longer. According to Prof. Atzmon, this variant ensured longevity absolutely. "This study nicely wraps up the connection between growth hormone function and longevity. Our goal now is really to understand the mechanism of the variation we found, so that we can implement it and enable longevity while maintaining quality of life," Prof. Atzmon concluded.

Coincidently the research found that men with this genetic variation were also about 3 cm taller than their counter-parts. This is in opposition to other species in nature wherein that smaller of the strains usually live longer. This phenomenon holds true in insects, rodents and other mammals. In human males however the receptor anomaly caused less growth hormone absorption.

This research is very encouraging for World Health and A4M members. It further explains what we have hypothesized for years, that certain genetics allow for longer life. Our entire existence at A4M and World Health is devoted to Anti-Aging and how to enhance life and longevity.

Article by: Dr. Michael J. Koch, Editor withwww.WorldHealth.net and for Dr. Ronald Klatz, DO, MD President of the A4M has 28,000 Physician Members, has trained over 150,000 Physicians, health professionals and scientists in the new specialty of Anti-aging medicine. Estimates of their patients numbering in the 100s of millions World Wide that are living better stronger, healthier and longer lives.
