The DNA of one-cell human embryos have been improved…
The DNA of one-cell human embryos have been improved with the gene-editing technique CRISPR. The objective is to eradicate or correct genes causing inherited diseases. The injection of CRISPR into the eggs is made at the same time they were fertilized with sperm.
About Genes called LLC (late life cyclers)…Genes called LLC (late life cyclers) become active late in life or during periods of intense stress and are linked to aging. Necessary during times of stress they can be harmful if activated all the time. They are found throughout the nervous system and peripheral organs.
About Stem cells in the brain’s hypothalamus…Stem cells in the brain’s hypothalamus govern how fast aging occurs in the body. Their number declining over the life accelerates aging. They release molecules called microRNAS. By injecting microRNAS in the cerebrospinal fluid, the treatment significantly slowed aging in the mice.
Stem cell therapy could halt and even reverse some symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis…An experiment in Canada shows that stem cell therapy can halt and even reverse some symptoms of Multiple Sclerosis (MS). The treatment consists of destruction and rebooting of each person’s immune system but is not for everyone with MS because of the high risks.
The brain is directly connected with the immune system by until now unknown vessels.The brain is directly connected with the immune system by until now unknown vessels. The discovered vessels are part of the lymphatic system, look different with age and could play a role in neurological diseases.
Mice have been protected from diabete through genetically modified skin grafts.Mice have been protected from diabete through genetically modified skin grafts. Using CRISPR gene-editing researchers alter the GLP-1 gene for longer activity, around 3 months. It will be easy to translate this treatment to people with type 2 diabete instead of daily insulin injections, possibly for other types of disease too.

(72aH*) : August 6th is the anniversary of the atomic bomb explosion on Hiroshima in 1945.
This date represents the entrance of Humanity into the age of Revelation (Apocalypsis).
Thus, since August 6, 2017, we are in 72 aH, (meanning 72 after Hiroshima).
It is also an “atheist” and universal calendar to replace the existing ” monotheist”, religious and non universal calendars.
