Abstract: Most people don't crawl through the dirt or hover over rotten fruit, but a new study reveals one thing we might have in common with the worms and flies that do. Women with particular alterations in insulin-signaling genes live longer than normal, suggesting that similar pathways influence aging in humans, nematodes, and fruit flies. But some researchers express reservations about the results.
