According to Japanese researchers, high life expectancy by about a third due to a particular gene CLEC3, which is also responsible for bone formation and prevents the spread of cancer cells.
To such conclusion experts were able to come, after analyzing the data four thousand three hundred vanadzite volunteers in the age not exceeding eighty years and five hundred thirty over ninety-five years (most members of this group at the time of research were more than a hundred years). The result has found out that centenarians have the above-mentioned gene CLEC3 had a number of features.
However, many scientists believe the impact of this gene on longevity is not as significant and highlight the importance of healthy eating and regular physical activity, and also insist on the need for further research in this area.
Also we will remind that earlier American experts have identified in the third and seventh human chromosome rare combinations of genes that influence lifespan, and decrease the likelihood of developing Alzheimer's disease and other diseases of the cardiovascular system.
