The science of cells that never get old | Elizabeth Blackburn

What makes our bodies age … our skin wrinkle, our hair turn white, our immune systems weaken? Biologist Elizabeth Blackburn shares a Nobel Prize for her …


  1. Thank you for sharing your research. It is telling us a lot how to do keep my health.

    한국어 번역 올려주셔서 너무 고맙습니다. 여러번 반복해서 듣고 싶은 좋은 강의네요^^

  2. It's not exactly environment effect our aging, it's our attitude toward environment, no matter how bad it is. My grandma (lived until 95) was born in 1913 and she didn't have parents so she didn't have all the emotional support a kid needed, she went through WW2 with two little kids on her own cause her husband died in the first few days of WW2 (border officer), she starved for many years and didn't have even the basics for more than half of her life, never remarried cause no men left after WW2, but as far as I know she was a pretty calm person, not sure about happy, but nonetheless it's all about you, yourself, not the environment around you.

  3. I have had profound long term stress. Taken care of a mother for several years as she had dementia, then had a severely disabled son! On top of that, rather than support and kindness, I received rudeness and shunning and judgement. I have been aging rapidly for several years. So, I really appreciate your research.

  4. you may kindly look at biology of belief by dr. Bruce lipton and The stress of life by Dr. Han seelye….this subject is well written and spoken from different way , eventually reaching the somepoint!

  5. Wow she did. Even the nobel prize winner for the discovery of telomerase doesn't even understand telomerase. Maria Blasco et al. in 2012 injected telomerase into mice and extended their lifespan and many other model organisms have had their lifespan extended. Wtf

  6. Plant cells do not age. They are frequently tissue propagated endlessly. So eat live plant products and it helps add life to our bodies. Definitely appears to work. Plus gardening is low stress occupation. The few people I've heard of who went 100% with it have experienced wonderfully reduced aging rate, and disease elimination.

  7. I really hope we discover a way to add to telomeres to our DNA. Because as soon as we start killing off senescent cells we will need to divide healthy cells to replace them which basically trades better health for less life.

  8. Chemical, physical and emotional stress. All effect gene expression. Take for example nutrients. We know that new cells require essential nutrients, building blocks. Amino acids, EFA's, minerals. If we don't get these we produce defective cells. Eliminate chemical, physical and emotional stressers. Eat a good healthy diet, get exercise, look after the mind and always continue learning.
    Great talk.

  9. what a waste of research money. even my 9 year old kid already knew stress leads to illness and shorter life. you don't need to look at pond scum to come to that same conclusion. tell me something I don't know
