I was at an ideas festival filled with some bright and accomplished people and I found myself rebuked by what I would consider true ignorance at least three times.
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
When we discuss the risk of telomere length to cancer risk, there are many studies but the conclusions we reach are limited by our simplistic assumptions.
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
