    I feel that Mashable likely overhyped this. While this development might affect certain areas of aging, I’m not so sure this is going to lengthen human life in the long-run. I I say this, because the human condition is more than just stress and inflammation. That, and how is this going to affect the very nature of your brain?

    After all you might have a great body, but a mind that’s heavily affected by Alzheimer’s.

    But we’ll just have to see. What do you think, Erin?
