Humans share some of the same genes involved in aging with nematodes.

A new study from a team of researchers at ETH Zurich suggests that it may be possible. The team sifted through 40,000 different genes from nematodes, zebra fish and mice, and identified 30 genes common to each species — and humans — that significantly influenced the aging process. Researchers found that inhibiting a single gene in nematodes extended their lifetimes by up to 25 percent. The finding is yet another insight into the genetic basis of long-term health and longevity.
