BenBella Books #ad - Human aging is the result of the aging of the body’s trillions of cells. But some of our cells don’t age. Telomerase re-lengthens the telomeres, keeping these cells young. The telomerase revolution describes how telomerase will soon be used as a powerful therapeutic tool, with the potential to dramatically extend life spans and even reverse human aging.

Every time a cell reproduces, its telomeres the tips of the chromosomes shorten. The essence of this theory is that human aging is the result of cellular aging. With every shortening of the telomeres, the cell’s ability to repair its molecules decreases. Michael fossel has been in the forefront of aging research for decades and is the author of the definitive textbook on human aging.
