Lobster maybe the key to long life
(KPLR) – Scientists say they may have found the key to eternal life in lobsters. Research shows lobsters possess an enzyme which makes them `biologically immortal.`
That means, growing older doesn`t increase their chance of death.
In other living creatures, strands of DNA get shorter as cells replicate and die, eventually becoming too badly damaged to copy new cells.
But in lobsters the enzyme prevents DNA strands from shortening and that allows perfect cells to replicate again and again.
