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.
When a person realizes that we are all time travelers without “do-overs” moving at a speed of one day per day through our lives, we can accept responsibility for untoward events, whether they be of equal, lesser, or higher probability because of our actions.
Today, it was announced that the MD Anderson Cancer Center decided it had wasted $62M on askng IBM’s Watson computer to cure cancer. It is not surprising, really…a machine cannot ask questions yet, it can only answer them.
I sat down with noted telomere scientist, Dr. Bill Andrews, the CEO of Sierra Sciences. He explains how the misconception of telomerase causing cancer got started and why it actually is the opposite.
