A significant reduction in calorie intake, known as calorie restriction (CR), has been shown to increase lifespan in a wide variety of animal subjects. If these results translated to humans, CR could substantially increase human lifespans by decelerating ageing. This possibility has led to an effort to develop calorie restriction mimetic drugs (CRM...

... Willcox et al. This means that at any age Okinawans display a lower risk of dying from an age-related disease than Japanese or Americans (see figure 3 above). Moreover, in Okinawans the onset of the period in which age-related disease is more likely is delayed. ...

Staten har en potentiellt viktig roll att spela i industriella förnyelseprocesser genom aktiv ”grön” industripolitik, då olika typer av marknadsmisslyckanden eller systemsvagheter kan förhindra framväxten av ny, och mer miljövänlig, teknologi. Inte sällan leder dock försök att åtgärda sådana misslyckanden till nya problem och kostnader, genom att p...

A study was experimentally and numerically conducted to investigate the fatigue performance of notched steel beams strengthened with prestressed unbonded carbon-fiber-reinforced polymer (CFRP) plates. The experimental study included several large-scale edge-notched steel beams that were strengthened by unbonded CFRP plate with different prestress l...

A sound ethical debate in biomedicine calls for (1) equipoise and (2) knowledge. The debate surrounding HEAVEN, the head transplant initiative, has been based on the exact opposite. Here we show that (1) HEAVEN is technically feasible and (2) HEAVEN can help patients with no other course of curative treatment available. At the same time we highligh...

The distribution of fixed steel offshore platforms around the world reveals a global fleet that has exceeded or is approaching the end of the design life of the facility. In many operating areas, there is an attraction to continue using these ageing facilities due to continued production or as an adjoining structure to facilitate a new field develo...
