In my search for wisdom about aging, I maintain that the primary cause is telomere shortening. This does not mean that methylation, signaling with stem cell produced vesicles (like packages with a purpose) don’t play a secondary role.
I would like to recommend the TV show, Younger for its new take on telling women’s stories. Let’s hear it for the women who bravely face the challenges of balancing reproductive capacity, career, freedom, and having to tolerate men.
I have noted that over the last nine years, taking telomerase activators in my patients can lead to increases but that this does not result in continuous lengthening. Now, we understand why this is the case.
In this 62-minute, we have a cheerful and accessible discussion that nonetheless goes quite deeply into my Telomere/Stem Cell Theory of Aging- right down a breakdown of Koch’s Postulates (the foundation of establishing disease causation versus correlation), the nature of stem cells, and how to naturally live longer and healthier
What we need is to imagine different types of questions that incorporate more meaningful queries; garbage in, garbage out, in other words. Time to ask better questions!
