Hyperbaric oxygen therapy increases telomere length and decreases immunosenescence

Recommended Posts

Michael Rae was also a skeptic about telomere length:  he noted that those of us on CR had elevated levels of epinephrine -- the "fight or flight" hormone.  And if I remember correctly, he believed that this should result in shorter telomere length.

In fact, many of us participated in a study at UCSF at which the Nobel laureate Dr. Elizabeth Blackburn (who discovered telomerase) participated.  The hypothesis being tested was:  that CRONnies would have longer telomeres than controls.

We didn't.
