I wrote an article that summarizes the telomere theory of aging in the light of the latest research. According to this theory, telomeres function as a countdown timer that limits the lifespan of individual cells, with two major consequences: the accumulation of senescent cells and the programmed elimination of stem cells. Together, these two factors cause the aging phenotype. 

I am genuinely interested in receiving factual feedback.
