Jason Hartman talks with Dr. Douglas Vaughan about the biological process behind aging, senescence, and how people can understand it and age healthily. They also discuss a genetic mutation that was been discovered that could potentially help the process of aging.
1:30 – A background on the molecular fingerprint of aging and properly understanding the term, senescence
5:11 – The various ways aging can be measured, especially understanding telomeres
7:03 – A genetic mutation that is seemingly slowing the aging process and the study of an Amish community that seems to have this mutation
12:02 – What makes it a mutation rather than just genes?
