Aging Victory Or Not?

Aging  Victory Or Not?

Recently Russian and foreign mass media informed us about a Russian researcher, who managed to find an anti-aging agent that worked. Is it a fake or not?
      
      Famous Russian biologist and biochemist Vladimir Skulachev claims he found a mighty antioxidant, which prevents an organism from deterioration with age. Main reason of ageing, according to Vladimir Skulachev, is oxygen superoxide, a very poisonous substance. New agent, discovered by the scientist, is believed to eliminate harmful effects of the superoxide and to prevent people for getting gold.
      
      First, we would like to remind that oxidants and their negative effects arent the only cause of all these processes we know under the name of aging. These exists a problem of limited amount of cell divisions, for instance, or a problem of telomerase activity, which is present in cancer cells and is thought to make them immortal. Second, the antioxidant was tested on animals and showed good results, but we know nothing about its effect on human beings.
      
      That is why I think that the fuss around the new cure-all is at least premature. Time will show.
