Scientists Turn Human Skin Cells Into Healthy Heart Cells

 "In a medical first, scientists in Haifa, Israel, took skin cells from two heart failure patients and reprogrammed them into stem cells that generated healthy, beating heart muscle cells in the lab. Though human testing is likely a decade off, the hope is that such cells can be used to help people with heart failure repair their damaged hearts with their own skin cells." (Video)

Aunk's commentary:
What this means in a nutshell is that an elder like me in the future will be able to get a new hart that the body builds from my own new skin cells. My LifeRcise Goal is to live to 120, in Cultural and physical health and wealth, for me that is the year 2066 and beyond What is you LifeRcise goal?

Whatever your goal the reality is the longer we live the more likely it is that science can keep us living. Check out what I am doing for my hart right now by jumping rope. Keep your hart strong now so it will be easy to rebuild part of it if you ever need it. Where is your rope?

Health is wealth and medicine is movement.
