The First Hourglass Aging Science Carnival

The inaugural Hourglass carnival of aging and longevity science is hosted at Ouroboros: "Welcome to the first installation of Hourglass, a blog carnival devoted to the biology of aging. This first issue corresponds with the second blogiversary of Ouroboros, but mostly I consider it a celebration of the excellent (and growing) community of bloggers who are writing about biogerontology, lifespan extension technologies, and aging in general ... BrainHealthHacks writes about recent evidence that smarter people live longer. This is true whether your metric of intelligence is education (which could be problematic, as education levels are often correlated with lifelong affluence and access to medical care) or whether you're looking at individual genetic variations correlated with both longevity and intelligence. It's a giant post that quotes several articles from the primary literature as well as studies by international organizations." You'll find an interesting view of ongoing calorie restriction studies too.
