In the 1930’s, twenty years before Watson and Crick described the DNA’s double helix, Herman Muller was irradiating fruit flies at Woods Hole to produce mutants with deletions and inversions involving the ends of chromosomes. High energy rays produce DNA breaks, which is why UV exposure gives us skin cancer.
Of note, he never found mutants with deletions or inversions
involving the natural ends of the chromosomes and concluded that:
‘‘. . . the terminal gene must have a special function, that of sealing the end of the chromosome, so to speak, and that for some reason a chromosome cannot persist indefinitely without having its ends thus sealed.’’
Muller coined the term telomere for this terminal gene from the Greek, meaning simply ‘‘end part,’’ but the fact that this region of the chromosome deserved a specific name was a recognition that something unusual was going on there.”
(The above was excerpted from: The Plant Cell, Vol. 16, 794–803, April 2004,)
Muller used experiment and observation to correctly deduce the function of telomeres long before we even knew the structure of DNA.
All too often, truth often has to wait for consensus and dogma to catch up. In the case of telomerase activation science, let’s hope it doesn’t take the seventy years that it took for Herman Muller to be vindicated by Maria Blasco’s work.

Great health to all,
P.S. To see experimental proof of telomerase’s role in preventing chromosomal damage, go to http://www.rechargebiomedical.com/stemcells.html
In 2007, I became the nineteenth patient to sign up for the use of a herbally-extracted telomerase activator.
The results were so positive that I founded Recharge Biomedical Clinic in 2008 and have since become the leading medical expert in this exciting new field of regenerative medicine treating over 1,300 patients with this exciting new telomerase activation medicine.
I won two Houston Film Festival Awards for my screenplays about Hypatia of Alexandria and Ed Brown of Kentucky.
In 2010 I wrote and self-published a Sci-Fi Graphic Novel called MAXIMUM LIFESPAN
In 2013, I wrote and published "Telomere Timebombs; Defusing the Terror of Aging"
