DailyTech – Study Finds Japanese Longevity Gene in Europeans.

A German study has found that a gene credited with long life in people of Japanese origin can also be found in Europeans. The research was conducted at Germany’s Kiel University where 388 Germans who were over 100 years old had their genetic makeup compared with 731 younger individuals. The researchers found that a variant of the gene FOXO3A occurred very frequently in the older group.
