Yesterday, at Thanksgiving, my brother’s partner told me that in her culture and family, they view dying of “old age” as the greatest thing you ever can hope for.
Firstly, there is no such thing as dying of old age; you can die at an advanced age of heart failure brought about by sub-clinical degenerative changes, which is what she meant. What the common sentiment signifies is that the best some people hope for is no death associated with violence, cancer, advanced dementia, stroke, heart attack, or permanent impairment from degenerative joint and bone disease.
I have to say that her view is not radical but is in fact, sadly the norm.
In this 31 minute interview, we discuss his amazing new book, The Telomerase Revolution, in which he explains why everyone with their pet theories and ideas about diet and what causes things from heart disease to Alzheimer’s, are all wrong.
Dr. Fossel has been taking TA-65 for eight years and now is starting a new career, hoping to start gene therapy trials for the treatment and prevention of Alzheimer’s using a potentially FDA-sanctioned technology of introducing the human telomerase gene into cells.
