Increase Telomeres, the ends of chromosomes that control cell aging
A pilot study, published in The Lancet Oncology, shows that comprehensive lifestyle changes may increase the length of telomeres, the ends of chromosomes that control cell aging. This is the first study to show that any intervention might lengthen telomeres over time. If the findings are confirmed by larger randomized controlled trials, scientists will begin to have a better understanding of how lifestyle changes may have the potential to reverse aging on a cellular level.
