“putting 2 and 2 together and getting ’22′” is in play when we talk about fears of telomerase causing cancer…
Did you know that 5% of men under 30 have prostate cancer and that number is as high as 70% over 70? Did you know that even though it can kill you, your doctor might recommend not treating it?
cells from prostate cancer patients with short telomeres and hypervariable lengths were 14X more likely to die of their disease
It is said that 70% of men over 70 have prostate cancer. Does telomerase activation impact the incidence, severity, or recurrence?
Men who developed cancers were compared with those that didn’t for the 13 years prior to diagnosis or exclusion by using a quantitative PCR measurement (which is problematic). Firstly, they found was two different curves with the cancer group showing a more rapid shortening trend. This is consistent with my stem cell theory of aging and most of the extant studies.
