    Reason for Ageing Discovered






    FT.com / UK - Scientists discover the secret of ageing

    "... The research, published by the journal Molecular Systems Biology, shows that when an ageing cell detects serious damage to its DNA – caused by the wear and tear of life – it sends out specific internal signals.

    These distress signals trigger the cell’s mitochondria, its tiny energy-producing power packs, to make oxidising “free radical” molecules, which in turn tell the cell either to destroy itself or to stop dividing. The aim is to avoid the damaged DNA that causes cancer. ..."

    So...would antioxidants promote a cancerous environment? It's something to think about, certainly.

    It won't let me read the article.

    Your question shows awesome insight. I'm sorry the link does not work. I don't have answers. Like you I'm intrigued. I'm waiting for further developments in this research.
