Scientists found the gene responsible for reducing lifespan because of stress and bad mood!

It’s high time to start fighting your stress and depression since researchers have found proof of the famous belief that all illnesses are caused by bad mood and distress!


A team from Indiana University School of Medicine and the Scripps Research Institute of California have recently published the results of their profound and complicated research aimed at discovering direct correlation between premature aging and stress or depression.

The conclusions made by the researchers are extremely interesting not only for the academic community but for common people as well. They prove that great stresses many of us are constantly experiencing may lead to aging of the organism and consequently to serious disorders.

This thorough investigation included experiments with Caenorhabditis elegans, a tiny 1mm nematode or worm, which is frequently used worldwide as a model organism in genetics, neurophysiology, molecular biology etc.

people in the Bible lived to be 800 years old...they had less stress than us?...there is a lot more to it than that...some people are unlucky...some people take good care of themselves and still die young...other mean, crabby people live forever...don't smoke...exercise...eat right...by my own definition I should have died years ago....maybe I did...

Stress is a big factor in all of our lives, but the biggest contiributor to disease is malnutrition. And, I don't mean the kind found in 3rd world countries, I mean the lack of proper nutrition that can occur from day to day, that exists in all of us.

Most of our food these days is nothing but junk, lacking real nutritional value and loades with refined sugars, sodium and just plain chemicals. Our soils have been depleted of nutrients. May as well eat cardboard and safe money for a nice funeral.

You really believe people in the Bible lived 800 yrs? I hope you are being sarcastic otherwise you have a real problem that has nothing to do with stress.

Marietta Mattei why would the Bible lie?...actually, I am an atheist, but I am also a historian. There is much from antiquity I take for truth....until they are proven otherwise....what was a year to someone that lived 4000 years ago?....

Stress releases cortisol. Cortisol puts pressure on vital organs. Cortisol is aging on the body. Logical conclusion stress is aging. No brainer. But fiNing a gene relating to aging is good news. Slowing our aging process means we can live longer and healthier
