Slowing down the ageing process, anti-ageing examples, genetics and more

The idea of an earthly “fountain of youth”, apparently having been around for centuries (according to the article, “Fountain of Youth” by Willie Drye from www.nationalgeographic.com), hints at an enduring human desire to remain youthful in appearance at a chronologically advanced (old) age.
