In this 62-minute, we have a cheerful and accessible discussion that nonetheless goes quite deeply into my Telomere/Stem Cell Theory of Aging- right down a breakdown of Koch’s Postulates (the foundation of establishing disease causation versus correlation), the nature of stem cells, and how to naturally live longer and healthier
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.
My boys and I were fortunate to take a beautiful kayak adventure through the GeoPark mangrove forest in Langkawi, Malaysia. Our naturalist guide pointed out an interesting adaptation to the salty environment that we would never have intuited on our own. The mangrove trees absorb excess salt then “choose” certain leaves in which to concentrate that salt. As a result, …
“The time has come to seriously ask whether antioxidant use more likely causes than prevents cancer,” Dr. Watson said. Nutritional intervention trials have shown no obvious effectiveness in preventing cancer or in lengthening lifespan, and, “in fact, they seem to slightly shorten the lives of those who take them.”
In this study by Krishna et al in the Journal of Clinical and Diagnostic Research, it was shows that yoga is associated with longer telomeres, lower inflammation, and less oxidative stress.
