Podcast 5-Dr. Ed Park of Recharge Biomedical Clinic explains stem cells and interviews Dr. Mike West, PhD, founder of Geron and a pioneer in regenerative medicine. Stem Cells are constantly renewed using telomerase activation.

Here are some quotes from Dr. West:

“There is a significant amount of evidence now that telomere damage or telomere shortening that is progressive in the cell lifespan is playing a fundamental role in aging.”

“The best evidence is that the telomere is fundamental in many aspects of aging and that activating telomerase can abolish many of those aspect of aging.”

“Telomerase activation is a great opportunity in our lifetime to make inroads for this problem of aging we’re facing acutely in the baby boom phenomenon.”
