We study how to stop the aging process in a Human.
The Founder Simon Edwards, a True believer in the Power of Love, does not age.
We work to understand how and why the unique experiences that Mr. Edwards went
through years ago lead to the ability to stop aging. These experiences were accidential,
unintentional and have the capability to replicate with enough information, testing, research and development.
Your DNA may predict more about you than the way you look. According to the genetic theory of aging,
your genes (as well as mutations in those genes) are responsible for how long you'll live.
Here's what you should know about genes and longevity, and where genetics fits in among the various theories of aging.
The genetic theory of aging states that lifespan is largely determined by the genes we inherit.
According to the theory, our longevity is primarily determined at the moment of conception
and is largely reliant on our parents and their genes.
The basis behind this theory is that segments of DNA that occur at the end of chromosomes,
called telomeres, determine the maximum lifespan of a cell.
Telomeres are pieces of "junk" DNA at the end of chromosomes which become shorter every time a cell divides.
These telomeres become shorter and shorter and eventually, the cells cannot divide without losing important pieces of DNA.
Before delving into the tenets of how genetics affects aging, and the arguments for and against this theory,
it's helpful to briefly discuss the primary categories of aging theories and some of the specific theories in these categories.
At the current time, there is not one theory or even one category of theories that can explain everything we observe in the aging process.
Mitochondrial Eve: The Mother of All Human Beings
Mitochondrial Eve is a female biological ancestor of humans, aptly named the mother of all humans.
It might seem very unusual or even impossible, but the DNA inside the mitochondria explains everything.
There is one DNA that a human child inherits from the mother.
Tracing this DNA back leads us to Mitochondrial Eve, who might have been the biblical Eve!
