Reversal of Aging Stem Cells

New research has shown the ability to reverse aging in adult stem cells.  By manipulating activity of non-coding RNA, considered "genomic junk," aging process on adult cells was reversed.  It is believed that the loss of telomeres, a cellular genetic component, leads to the inability of a cell to regenerate.  Once we lose this ability, aging follows.
