A New Study Reveals That the Secret to Longevity Is in Our White Blood Cells

Most of us have a high interest in what it takes to live longer. Whether it be the fear of death or the love of life, we're intrigued by that which will hinder our lifespan, and that which can elongate it. And we may now actually have a more definitive answer as to what will increase our longevity. A study of blood and tissue samples from Hendrikje van Andel-Schipper, who was once the oldest woman in the world, exposed the idea that death from old age is actually caused by the exhaustion of blood stem cells. So now that science has been made aware of this, what do they do with the information? Should these stem cells be manually replenished, and therefore escape death? stem cells Some scientists believe in the possibility of rejuvenating aging bodies by taking saved stem cells from birth or early life and re-injecting them into their systems. “If I took a sample now and gave it back to myself when I’m older, I would have long telomeres again—although it might only be possible with blood, not other tissue,” explains Henne Holstege who is a lead researcher of the study on van Andel-Schipper’s blood. But rather than using this information to give us all that "fountain of youth" look we long for, scientists are hoping to use the findings as a means to help explain why some people are more susceptible to Alzheimer’s disease.
