Scientists have found the fats that prolong life
MOSCOW, 6 APR — RIA Novosti. American scientists have established a link between annelids consumption of monounsaturated fatty acids and increase the lifespan of these creatures, writes the journal Nature, which published the study.
In the course of studying the metabolic activity of annelid worms, which is observed in the lack H3K4me3, the researchers found that the lack of this protein leads to the accumulation in the intestine of worms of monounsaturated fatty acids, consumption of which affects the increase in the duration of these nematodes.
Now genetics are going to determine how the consumption of monounsaturated fatty acids affect the human body and the duration of his life.
Monounsaturated fatty acids are found in olive oil, red meat and nuts. Regular consumption of these acids leads to a decrease in the risk of cardiovascular pathologies and improve vascular tone.
