The health Ministry doubted that the stem cells will «cure» against aging

The use of stem cells does not in itself solve the problem of aging, said in an interview with RIA Novosti chief geriatrician of the Ministry of health of Russian Federation, doctor of medical Sciences, Director of the Russian gerontological scientific clinical center Olga Tkacheva.

«Life expectancy depends on a number of factors, especially from genetics and a person’s lifestyle. Stem cells will not solve everything. Research is being conducted into the application of stem cells, but so far we cannot say that these technologies can be widely introduced in society, including due to insufficient scientific evidence. Proven secret of longevity is actually easier – it lies in a healthy lifestyle», — she answered to the question about the use of stem cells and the wide application of genetic engineering to extend life.
