Telomeres, the repetitive nucleoprotein complexes capping the ends of human chromosomes, are highly heritable but also diminish in length with aging and due to environmental factors such as smoking.1 Critically short telomeres signal replicative senescence, and shorter telomeres have been reported as a risk factor for cancer, cardiovascular and infectious… CONTINUE READING
