Although the underlying mechanisms have yet to be clarified, the scientists assume that the increased life expectancy in humans as well as in the nematode C. Original publication: by the trace element lithium can be induced.

Study from the USArate that environmental lithium uptake promotes longevityProfessor Dr. Michael Ristow team was together with Japanese colleagues from universities in Oita and Hiroshima demonstrated by two independent approaches that even a low concentration of lithium in an increased life expectancy of people as well as results in a model organism, the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans. The research team presented its findings in the online edition the scientific publication European Journal of Nutrition, which is now online.The results demonstrated that longer passed since diagnosis, most of issues seen improve their following five-year conditional survival after the initial disease-free period. For instance, at the time the diagnosis of, to to survive a to survive a 76 – per cent probability of five years, but those who were already survived survive disease-free for five years, a 90 % chance another five years.

The results of study the Monday, June 2006 at the American meeting of the American Society for Clinical Oncology Atlanta, Presentation is an assumed by eight abstracts of members the OHSU Department of Radiation Medicine at writer for presenting at the conference.
