I have noted that over the last nine years, taking telomerase activators in my patients can lead to increases but that this does not result in continuous lengthening. Now, we understand why this is the case.
People who reported two types of exercise were 24 percent less likely to have short telomeres; three types of exercise were 29 percent less likely; and those who had participated in all four types of activities were 59 percent less likely to have very short telomeres.
In this Carl Sagan-esque video I explain my Telomere/Stem Cell Theory of Aging and Disease and explain why we are all destined to get all cancers and yet this is entirely preventable.
In long-awaited and landmark study published yesterday in Genetics, Lapham and 28 other authors collaborated to report telomere length in a cohort of Kaiser patients who gave saliva samples.
After two years of TA-65 use, his median length is now 12,500 (from an estimated 9,400) with a very nice drop in critically-short telomeres to 4.5% (from a baseline of up to 20%). So if you believe what most research is showing regarding the connection between shorter telomeres and longevity, Mark has gained over 30 years of longevity in a time where he should have lost three years.
