An essential component of contraceptive/birth control pill 17α-Ethinyl Estradiol (EE) may extend lifespan and healthspan: 17α-Ethinyl Estradiol (EE), one of the components of contraceptives and birth control pills, inhibits the expression of Ribosomal protein S6 kinase 1 (p70S6 Kinase) and extends mammalian lifespan, via upregulation of its target gene, 11/August/2017, 8.54 am

What they say:  A study from the Institute of Healthy Ageing, Centre for Diabetes and Endocrinology, Department of Medicine, University College London, London WC1E 6JJ, UK shows that “Ribosomal […]
