A lot of scientific and pseudo-scientific theories of aging have arisen, over which whole gerontological institutes work, created in almost all countries of the world. There are a lot of theories describing the causes of aging – a change in the regulation of gene activity, a decrease in the synthesis of intracellular regulators of plasma membranes, a decrease in the length of telomeres (end sections of chromosomes), the concept of stress-age syndrome, etc. Continue reading
