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
Instead of being thrown off the the trail by the differences, we should find the commonalities. Both models of aging- oxidative damage and telomere shortening cause chromosome disruption and bone marrow mesenchymal stem cell damage and depletion.
Dr. Andrews explains the benefits of interbreeding, killing off the older individuals of a species, and the dangers of natural products. Dr. Andrews also explains why CRISPR/Cas9 is just a well-branded idea for an old technology of gene editing.
In the second of three interviews with Bill Andrews at the 2016 AMMG, we discuss the Henrietta Lacks (or HeLa) cervical cancer cells commonly used in cell research. Dr. Andrews also discusses why telomere erosion is less a factor in mice aging.
I sat down with noted telomere scientist, Dr. Bill Andrews, the CEO of Sierra Sciences. He explains how the misconception of telomerase causing cancer got started and why it actually is the opposite.
