Intriguing Finding for Male Longevity

Here's some interesting basic research reported at the LEF News. All the best research raises new questions, leaving scientists looking for new answers. In this case, it seems that men who are genetically prone to higher levels of an anti-inflammatory protein are more likely to live longer lives. This raises some interesting questions in connection with common age-related conditions that involve persistant inflammation. Very intriguing, and I'm sure some of my readers have their own theories on this already.
