This is the latest study linking shorter telomeres to disease (there are over 10,000) that once again falls victim to proving obvious yet useless information. In this study, they linked smaller hippocampal volumes (seen in Alzheimer’s) with shorter white blood cell telomeres in a subset of women with a genetic prediliction for Alzheimers (the abnormal ApoE3 gene).
