Traditionally, anti-aging interventions have targeted damage. For instance, the shortening of telomeres or the reduction of oxidative stress. However, if “software programs” are the primary drivers of aging, then the success of these interventions may be limited.
The researchers detailed how the only way anti-aging therapies will be effective is if they specifically target the body’s software as opposed to hardware. And moving forward, this unconventional idea may lead to a better understanding of human aging and more successful development of aging interventions.
