Scientists have found a new way of treating cancer and dementia with the help of six new proteins. This group of substances reduces the oxidative action of free radicals on the cells. As a result, in the tissues speeds up metabolism and increases insulin sensitivity, says Zee News.
With age, the number of proteins in the body decreases. This is an irreversible process, however, scientists have found a way to intervene in it.
A number of proteins not encoded and are synthesized in the nucleus and in mitochondria. Affecting the genome of the mitochondria, it is possible to increase the concentration of "youth proteins" in cells. As a result, increases the protective properties of the immune system. Decreases the likelihood of developing dementia, cancer, diabetes and many other diseases.
