A group of scientists from the University of Bern in Switzerland have identified the key cause of aging. About it reports “Komsomolskaya Pravda” with reference to the study.
Experts found out which cells play an important role in the pathological process.
According to the study, visceral fat located in the abdominal cavity, contributes to mild chronic inflammation. This process accelerates the development of age-related diseases and the weakening of the immune system that leads to aging.
The scientists clarify that the key role in the pathological process is played by the specific immune cells — leukocytes eosinophils. As a rule they are present in the circulatory system, but experts have found them in visceral adipose tissue in humans and mice. These cells help the body to provide protection against multicellular parasites. As leukocytes eosinophils contribute to the development of allergies of the respiratory organs.
Previously, scientists Carskogo University in Germany is called one of the main mechanisms that contribute to aging. Its suppression can prolong life and health. Researchers have shown that low levels of the hormone cortisol and specific GILZ protein, the body develops chronic inflammation, which is the main aging process.
In June it was reported that processed food containing a minimum of five additives dyes, preservatives, thickeners, flavors and other triggers premature aging.
