Re: We’re all going to die; DNA Strands on the End of Our Chromosomes Hint When

to javala, do you not know this is a shopping channel and all posts should be for QVC products, not Hsn or SHOP HQ either- your post is about science not shopping or something that you bought- but a good article I think

Sorry that this happened to you.

My mother was done the same way and wrong medicines for my father.

It is devastating and hurtful as we watch the good,decent people we love work their whole lives, try to do the right thing and then gone in an instant thru neglect, laziness and greed.

So was my mother, but it has nothing to do with the new research, and for sure, it has nothing to do with the obvious notion that we are all going to die sometime.

Even if someday you could have your "telomeres" lengthened, you could walk out and get hit by a truck.

Take that research money and use it to figure out why more and more of us are dying of autoimmune disease.

Or drop a bomb on Monsanto.

Excellent suggestion.......BOMB MONSANTO! That would benefit all of us!! We could even use some of their own toxic waste to do it!

I think there is good reason for the studies of telomeres, and I'm hoping it will lead to research and treatment for children with progeria.

We can do both... study telomeres and autoimmune disease.
