A drop of blood could help scientists predict if you'll die in the next five years, thanks to inflammatory markers.
Penniless New Yorkers live longer than impoverished inhabitants of other American cities, a new detailed research suggested.
Three new studies presented at the annual meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science found that reprogramming a patients' own immune cells help in targeting specific molecules in cancer that lead to high rates of remission. The T-cell immunotherapy produced incredible results...
Previous studies have boasted the benefits of drinking coffee. Now, a 10-year U.S. study on regular coffee drinkers reminds us, again, of its benefits. (And yes, caffeine-free coffee drinkers, this benefits you, too.)

It turns out that intelligent people live longer. Scientists have discovered that a person's genes determines not only how smart they are, but also that these genetics are linked to how long they live.
Could be extend our lives by changing our RNA? Scientists have made a breakthrough in decoding the aging process and how to dramatically slow it down.
If you look old on the outside, you're probably old on the inside. Researchers have taken a close look at a group of younger volunteers to see exactly how old they are biologically.
Why don't men live as long as women? That's a good question and now, researchers may have an answer. Scientists have taken a closer look at heart disease in both women and men and have found that this may explain the difference.
A certain diet may be able to extend your life. Scientists have found that putting people on a feast-or-famine diet may mimic some of the benefits of fasting, and that adding antioxidant supplements may counteract some of those benefits.
