TELOMERES AND ANTI-AGING RESEARCH
The back story behind my question is here: http://pensive-reverie.tumblr.com/post/14157552810/telomeres-telomerase-and-cancer
It’s a short read, and with your medical knowledge, the link is irrelevant.
I simply wanted your input concerning Product B, obvious flaws and unanswered questions that would point to this being a scam, real telomere research in its current state, and future research concerning longevity and aging.
I only just discovered your blog, and it has been a wealth of information. I’m a 3rd year Pre-Med (Biology) undergrad at Georgia Tech, and you’ve only fostered my desire to be a doctor. Thank you for all that you do, as a doctor and a blogger. You’re a gentleman and a scholar.
Um, let me start by saying, thanks for reading and thanks for your kind words!
That being said: Uh, what the heck? There is nothing “simple” about your request for input — it made my temporal lobes hurt, just trying to read through your question, let alone trying to stagger through all the science in the Scientific American article your original post appears to be referring to. Dude, I haven’t had to use ANY of that type of scientific knowledge since my Step 1 board exams in med school!
*Oh no, here come the board exam flashbacks! THE BELL! THE BELL!!! GET TO THE CHOPPAH!!!*
So, yeah. I’ve got nothing. Nothing about flaws in this “Product B” that you keep mentioning (but which I couldn’t find mentioned in the linked article), nothing about the current state of telomere research (real or otherwise), nothing abuot future research on nada.
Sorry. I have failed you. Gotta go commit seppuku now.
