Immune competence is the key to fighting off diseases, especially cancer
I explain how aging emerges from an imbalance of cell birth, maintenance, and death, and the inevitability of time and entropy.
How telomere erosion leads to chromosomal mutation, which causes dysfunction and cell death (we hope)
Failure to faithfully replicate and preserve stem cell DNA appears to be the final common pathway to premature aging
The fact that progeria-affected kids have undeniable biological aging despite young epigenetic and chronological ages implies that telomerpathies that drive them are still the most robust explanation for aging globally
