'Superhero DNA' keeps diseases at bay
Large numbers of studies have tried to understand these mutations by looking at people who become ill.
But the international team of researchers tried the opposite approach - searching for people harbouring damaging mutations but who remain healthy. [...] "Study the healthy, don't just study the sick."
However, this is where the tantalising story ends. The scientists were unable to go out and find the lucky 13 because of the consent rules signed when their DNA sample was taken.
It means they do not know what is protecting them against disease. [...] "Because of the inability to confirm the source or validity of the variants and the inability to recontact the individuals, this paper does not constitute a proof of principle," [ means they have to do a large-scale study especially for this kind of research ]

Age of menopause 'controllers' found - BBC News
Damage corrected. Comparing the DNA of nearly 70,000 women allowed the researchers to identify the differences between those starting the menopause early and late. The team at Exeter and Cambridge universities showed that at least two repair mechanisms were involved. The first is used when the eggs are being formed and the woman's DNA is being broken, rearranged and repaired. The second corrects damage, caused by factors such as smoking or alcohol, throughout a woman's life. Both would influence the number of viable eggs a woman has. //&! Whole-Food Plant-Based Diet repairs DNA and telomere shorten slower. It is an anti-ageing diet. Period. -

Early Twitter Vets Launch Color Genomics To Make Genetic Screenings For Breast Cancer Affordable | TechCrunch
So Laraki and Gil’s new company, Color Genomics, focuses on bringing the costs of screenings down to $249. “For every one woman that our competitors can test, we can test 10 women for the same price,” Gil said. Competitor Myriad Genetics, which famously lost a case at the U.S. Supreme Court in 2013 over whether it had a patent on the BRCA genes and thereby a monopoly on testing around them, charges roughly $4,000.
