I heard *Scoop Nisker say those words a couple of years ago now, and they really stayed with me, as they speak to my own interest in healthy aging, something which has definitely grown with age.
I was further inspired a number of years ago when I was introduced to Michael Fossel’s 1997 book Reversing Human Aging. In it he unveiled new advancements in what has come to be know as Telomere Science. In short, Telomeres are specialized sections of DNA at the ends of our chromosomes, which get shorter each time our cells divide as we age. This allows them to serve as a bio-marker for our overall health and our prospects for a longer, healthier life.
