Humans Can Reverse Their Biological Age, Shows a 'Curious Case' Study
In a small, 1-year clinical trial published Thursday in the journal Aging Cell, nine participants took three common medications — growth hormone and two diabetes drugs — and reversed their biological age by 2-and-a-half years on average. Greg Fahy, Ph.D., lead author of the study and chief science officer of anti-aging therapeutics company Intervene Immune, tells Inverse that this research proves the concept that biological aging may not be unstoppable.
“One of the lessons that we can draw from the study is that aging is not necessarily something that is beyond our control,” he says. “In fact it seems that aging is largely controlled by biological processes that we may be able to influence.”

A mother from New Rochelle, New York, died while undergoing plastic surgery in the Dominican Republic, CBS New York reports. She is the third American to die in a month during a cosmetic operation in the Caribbean nation.

Her sister says Medina contacted a Dominican doctor through Facebook, who said the surgery wouldn't be an issue. "This doctor was like, 'No problem. We can do it. We can handle it. We've dealt with bigger women, so come here. We'll do it.' And it was obviously also cheaper," David said.

Do you consider your home a great investment? Think again
Your home may be many things. A place to raise your family. An opportunity to put down roots.
But one thing it is not is a great investment, according to Jonathan Clements, editor of HumbleDollar.com and author of “How to Think About Money.”
That’s because the price appreciation of a house is “pretty modest” — about 1% a year faster than inflation, historically speaking, he said.
Freddie Mac is forecasting home prices will grow 3.6% in 2019 and 2.6% in 2020. According to the latest figures from the Labor Department, the inflation rate as tracked by the Consumer Price Index is 2% for the 12 months ending in April.
“You put it all together and most people are not keeping up with inflation after costs, and they may even be underwater, ” said Clements, who prefers the higher long-term rate of return of the stock market.
