Race to slow the aging process
"This program airs conflicting viewpoints of biologists, nutritionists, and geriatric experts as it presents efforts being made to dramatically slow the process of aging. Factors impacting the rate of aging and bodily changes associated with aging are analyzed, and insights into the telomere hypothesis, the oxidative stress hypothesis, and hormone depletion associated with aging are provided. Research into telomere elongation is discussed, and two controversial therapies--calorie restriction and hormone replacement--are debated. A visit to a documented longevity village in Japan, home to 112-year-old Yoko Minagawa, is included as well"--Container.
