Cause of Old Age Discovered?

 

Scientists at the Baylor College of Medicine in Houston have discovered that much of the deterioration in animals' bodies due to old age is caused by a protein which protects the body from cancer.

The results of the research "raise the shocking possibility that aging may be a side effect of the natural safeguards that protect us from cancer," the scientists say.

This "fascinating" and "surprising" discovery raises questions like: Will research intended to extend the human life cause more cancer? and Will people undergoing cancer treatment age faster?
