Mikhail Blagosklonny talks of the possible role in aging where he outlines the correlation between a cellular system that control growth of cells, development and aging subject to dynamic external environment with varying factors such as nutrient availability, energy levels, growth factors and physiological stresses. He argues that it relays signals of these changes, from which a regulatory action in growth and metabolism is taken in all eukaryotic cells. Rapamycin has been proven to inhibit growth of cells and therefore can be used in cancer treatment to prevent growth or rejuvenation of cancer cells.

The transgender law within the United States is a very controversial topic. Should people who claim to be of the opposite gender be allowed to use public restrooms that do not match their natural sex at birth? In other words, just because a man says that he is now a woman; should he be allowed to use a woman’s bathroom? This is at the heart of the issue and many people are staunchly divided over it.
Political activist George Soros is not gay nor is he a transgender individual. He is a liberal man who has been married three times and divorced twice. His current wife is 42 years younger than him. As of this writing Soros is 86 (the year is 2017). His wife Tamiko Bolton is 44. So, Soros is an old guy that likes young women (relatively speaking that is).
Anyway, Soros’s life has not been categorized by homosexuality or transgender issues. However, he views their plight in the cultural context as an issue to be addressed. Soros believes in having an open and tolerant society. Even if that means supporting people’s lifestyles that are opposed to his own.

It is not that Soros wants the homosexual lifestyle to become the norm for everyone; he just wants to make sure that no one is suffering from it just because they choose to live in that way. This is one of the major reasons why he supports various pro-homosexual groups such as the GSA and the LGBTQ organizations within the U.S.
For Soros, the situation regarding transgender laws and equality for gays is similar to the Civil Rights Movement. Since Soros supports equality for all minority people he also includes gay and transgender people within this scope. So, he has been known to provide funding for various groups and organizations that are in support of this cause. He wants people to understand that a person should have the right to express themselves and their sexuality in a way that seem fit. They should not be discriminated against because of this stance that they take.
People might not agree with this position but Soros realizes that disagreement is not at the heart of this issue. It simply is about treating minority groups fairly. That is what Soros is trying to accomplish through his support of gay and transgender policies and establishments. Visit projectsyndicate.com to know more about George.
Soros continues to provide support on these issues. He leaves it up to the federal government, states and American citizens to decide how they want to respond to the transgender issue. He does not judge gay and transgender people for making the decision to live in a way that they choose is best for them. Once again, he just wants to ensure that everyone is being treated fairly and given a fair chance.
