The New Theory of Aging

What if everything you think you know about getting old is wrong? Enter Ed Park, M.D., M.P.H., with the revolutionary idea that disease and aging in humans all arises from a single source—genetic errors caused by shortening of telomeres, the sequences of DNA at the ends of chromosomes—and that there’s a way to turn back the clock. In this lively discussion, Ed talks about the new theory of aging, detailed in his new book from Hay House coming in early 2018. He explains the science, using metaphors ranging from auto parts to superheroes, and tell us how we can intervene in the aging process by boosting the activity of the enzyme telomerase.
