How would you react if your dad told you during your teenage years to do something significant like find the cure for aging? Well, that is exactly what my guest today was told as a young boy. And he never forgot it!
As the Founder, President and CEO of Sierra Sciences, a bio-tech company in Reno, Nevada, he is in the process of doing just that. Seem unlikely? You wont feel that way after you hear what he has to say. Dr. Andrews views aging just as any other disease. He tells you why he feels that way and has data to back him up.
The Nobel Prize for Medicine or Physiology in 2009 was awarded for work done on telomere biology. This is the same field we will be discussing today. You’ll soon see why it has the potential to turn back the hands of time as well as cure cancer and a host of other chronic diseases. You’ll even hear how the ability to lengthen telomeres might enable AIDs patients to live normal lives.
Sound too good to be true? Only if you’ve never heard Bill Andrews explain how close he is to solving these difficult problems.
