According to scientists, the recently discovered disease could have the same effect as the outbreak that drove the Gros Michel banana variety to extinction during the 1950s. Researchers have discovered that a drug originally used to treat diabetes has strong anti-ageing properties. They even claimed that under the right conditions, people can live up to 120 years old with the help of this drug.
