Telomere article from 2003

I had no idea that people have been talking about telomerase activation since 2003. Maybe even earlier.

Check out this article from January 2003.

Could extending telomeres, those bits of DNA at the ends of chromosomes in cells, prolong lives?

Some scientists think so.

Researchers in the United States, who discovered that elderly people with longer telomeres lived five to six years longer than people with shorter ones, think increasing the length of telomeres could be a possible key to a longer life.
