Viva the worm ike yin and yang, good things usually come at a cost. If you live longer, then you give up reproductive fitness in return. The merits of this model—termed antagonistic pleiotropy—have been argued by evolutionary biologists for half a century. Some believe that the effort of reproduction is necessarily linked to deterioration characteristic of aging. have challenged the idea by uncoupling reproduction and aging. They focused their studies on worms, in which the insulin pathway… CONTINUE READING
