So we suspected that chronic CMV infection ages us but we only conprehended that the immune system burns out fighting it. Until this paper, we didn’t realize that it also steals the healthy gene transciption factors that the host cell needs to stabilize its telomers. It’s a double whammy.
For today’s #WesbinarWednesday, I’m going to let my friend and colleague, Dr. Michael Fossel, do the heavy lifting. He gives this wonderful 20-minute TED-like talk about why aging is a logical and reversible condition. Enjoy!
