Biologists slow aging, extend lifespan of fruit flies

In research that potentially could delay the onset of Parkinson's disease, Alzheimer's disease, cancer, stroke, cardiovascular disease, and other diseases of aging, biologists have produced a genetic one-two punch that significantly slowed aging and improved health in the middle-aged fruit flies they studied.
