A body is a machine in turn made up of trillions of cellular machines, all exhibiting decreasing genomic integrity and stability as we age. Here are some insights which help to explain aging as the result of increasing entropy
Yesterday, I was rushing through a shipping task and clumsily sliced open my ring finger to about a 1.5mm depth. Predictably, blood came gushing out…
When we discuss the risk of telomere length to cancer risk, there are many studies but the conclusions we reach are limited by our simplistic assumptions.
So what we believe from this new study is that telomere that are too short are bad, telomeres that are too long are trimmed, and that telomeres that are just right are best.
I assumed that the stem cells throughout your body were all getting damaged at the same rate and that was causing the synchronization of different diseases.
