According to a study published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, researchers have found a way to halt aging of human cells.

The team of researchers at the Houston Methodist Research Institute (HMRI) focused on a specific part of chromosomes, called telomeres, to reverse the effects of premature aging in children with a fatal genetic disease called progeria, and the research showed promising results, notes Futurism.

Separately, Harvard Medical School researchers have also achieved a certain degree of success in preventing and mitigating damage to mice DNA from aging using a different approach, writes The Daily Caller.
