As much as I would like to believe the report that Japanese scientists at Osaka University have discovered the long sought after "fountain of youth" as reported in a currently ongoing ATS thread ... I'm leaning strongly however to this being nothing more than a hoax with no scientific validation behind it whatsoever.
A quick Google search finds many links to this report but every single one of them eventually leads back to just one originating Russian source, namely rt.com.
This Russian site makes this incredible claim but provides NO reputable scientific sources whatsoever.
In fact, even a search on the Osaka University website makes no reference whatsoever to this "so-called" breakthrough.
Does anyone believe for one moment that a breakthrough of this magnitude would be first revealed to the world through a Russian tabloid ? Where's the peer review and associated scientific publications ?
My opinion ... nothing more than a HOAXedit on 10/6/12 by tauristercus because: (no reason given)

Now if you and the OP of the other thread would learn to spell "aging" correctly.....then we'd have a win.

Of course they haven't figured out the solution to immortality... this is just like any other discovery related to aging. They have discovered some chemical or protein related to aging and they made an advancement in the area of understanding exactly how aging works. By no means does this mean they have mastered everlasting life. There's no need to take things so literally...
