Every time that a DNA molecule replicates, it loses a tiny bit of its Telomeres. Telomeres can best be compared to the tip of a shoelace. Telomeres keep the DNA molecule intact and tightly wound. Of course, our understanding of Telomeres is still in its infancy, and it is hypothesized that as we learn more about Telomeres, we can figure out ways to improve health and expand life-expectancy through the preservation of these Telomeres. Aside from aging,
