"A small clinical trial, which was conducted by a team of researchers led by Dr. Greg Fahy, has shown for the first time in humans that reversing biological age may be possible.

The results of TRIIM are in

The researchers spent a year running the Thymus Regeneration, Immunorestoration, and Insulin Mitigation (TRIIM) trial, which included 9 volunteers aged between 51 and 65. The trial was aimed at testing if a growth hormone and drug combination could be used safely in humans to restore thymic function lost due to aging [1].

The thymus is a vitally important immune organ responsible for producing T cells that combat infections, repel invading pathogens, and destroy cancer. However, after puberty, the thymus begins to shrink in a process known as involution; gradually, the T cell-producing tissues turn to fat, and the organ wastes away with a corresponding decline in T cell production and loss of immune function. This, of course, then leaves us wide open to attack from pathogens and diseases."

So, spam.
We 'new atheists' have a reputation for being militant, but make no mistake  we didn't start this war. If you want to place blame put it on the the religious zealots who have been poisoning the minds of the  young for a long long time."

Not so much as what you do as what you don't do ...

Don't burn the candle at both ends!

Not so much as what you don't do as what you do ..
