Over time, the body accumulates a variety of molecular damage.
An international group of scientists found that food stale food leads to rapid aging.
Experts conducted experiments on mice, fruit flies and yeast and determined that the old organisms lead to its own accelerated aging.
Researchers from the U.S. and South Korea decided to test one of the key hypotheses about the causes of aging. It lies in the fact that over time the body accumulates a variety of molecular damage from somatic mutations and transformation of gene expression to DNA methylation and cell damage due to oxidation.
If the hypothesis is correct, then eating the old organisms in which these molecular damage is already there, can accelerate the aging process.
