anti-ageing genes and cancer

This is an interesting Perspective on turning anti-ageing genes against cancer. In such fluid states nutrition is bound to have a role. Recent studies in diverse organisms implicate proto-oncogenic pathways, including insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I), Ras and AKT/protein kinase B in the ageing process. Although IGF-I is thought to contribute to cancer by promoting growth…
