You can place two species of hydra animals in the same environment at a temperature of 10 degrees Celsius. One will age (Hydra oligactis) and the other one won’t (Hydra vulgaris). Now here are the details.

Short-lived and fast aging species are great choices to screen anti-aging interventions: chemical substances, physical factors, biological additions. Once an effect is noticed on short-lived species, gradual-aging ones can be used to test what you screened. And where do you start when you want to screen interventions? You start from those species that ‘know’ what they’re doing: negligibly senescent and long-lived ones. The secret sauce here is big data.

You can never put things in perspective until you measure them. And you need hard, cold numbers for that. Calorie restriction with optimal nutrition is the only robust method in gerontology that reliably prolonged lifespans in many species with an average of 30%. I thought 30% is huge. It’s not. Because after a serendipitous conversation with Thomas Hahn, I realized that the difference in lifespan between worker bees and their queens is around 400%. And there is only protein responsible for…
