Telomere

Image via Wikipedia

Can we live forever? Probably not but we may be able to live longer than we do today. In my last BLOG on telomeres, we discussed the relationship between the length of a telomere and the aging process. Some studies also relate certain cancers to telomere length. Scientists are showing a relationship between telomeres and epigenetics. Maybe our environment is playing a role there as well. This is an area that will be studied more at major universities around the world.
