Prometheus and Methusela, the world’s oldest trees

Ed Park, MD Uncategorized 1 Comment

The two oldest trees known were Bristlecone Pine trees in Nevada (Prometheus-5000 years old) and Prometheus in California (4800 years old)

Like all living things more evolved that bacteria, trees need to lengthen their telomeres with telomerase otherwise they’ll die from critically shortened chromosome tips, the telomeres. The difference between us and trees is that their telomeres are seven base pairs repeating (TTTAGGG) rather than the six that we use (TTAGGG.)

Bacteria all have circular DNA, which can be easily reproduced without shortening. In contrast, each cell from a EUKARYOTE (yeast, plants, and animals) houses the entire vast library of thousands of genes in its nucleus. The variable expression of those genes determines the form and function cells in their organs.

Evidence shows that trees with more telomerase activity live longer. With high telomerase activation, 2000- to 5000-year lifespans are possible. With moderate activity comes medium lifespans (400- to 500 years) and with little activation, the pine trees are short-lived (100- to 200-years.) †

You are fortunate to live in a time after the discovery of TA-65, a nutraceutical substance that can activate telomerase and thereby delay aging. Start your Patton Protocol now and you can experience rejuvenation so that someday, you can be “as old as the trees.”

† Flanary and Kletetschka published these results in Rejuvenation Research (2006 Spring; 9(1): 61-63

I graduated from Harvard with honors in Biological Anthropology prior to earning my Medical Degree and Masters in Public Health from Columbia University.

In 2007, I became the nineteenth patient to sign up for the use of a herbally-extracted telomerase activator.

The results were so positive that I founded Recharge Biomedical Clinic in 2008 and have since become the leading medical expert in this exciting new field of regenerative medicine treating over 1,300 patients with this exciting new telomerase activation medicine.

I won two Houston Film Festival Awards for my screenplays about Hypatia of Alexandria and Ed Brown of Kentucky.

In 2010 I wrote and self-published a Sci-Fi Graphic Novel called MAXIMUM LIFESPAN

In 2013, I wrote and published "Telomere Timebombs; Defusing the Terror of Aging"
