Deep aging clocks based on AI

Carve out some time to read this article, as it gets a bit technical. Basically, scientists are now finding AI-based biomarkers of aging and longevity. “Multiple data types can be used to predict age and associate the prediction with mortality, disease, general wellbeing, or other biological processes including methylation, gene expression, microbiome, and imaging data.” learn more

Animal study presents best evidence to date that Parkinson’s begins in the gut

This research builds on a compelling body of evidence pointing to a gut-brain connection in the disease and hints at possible new treatment pathways.” learn more
