Dr Bill Henry Andrews, Ph.D. is an American molecular biologist and gerontologist whose career has centered on searching for a cure for human aging. Andrews is the founder and president of the biotechnology company Sierra Sciences.

 

Aging is a complex and difficult topic that has been the centre of attention of many scientists for centuries. That's also what Bill Andrews, Ph.D. has made his challenge to solve.

Aging isn't an accident. We age because our telomeres get shorter and our cells age. Every time our cells divide, our telomeres get shorter and our cells age. Aging is also the cause of a lot of diseases. Research suggests that control of the telomere length has the potential to treat many diseases linked to aging.

This is what SIERRA SCIENCES group of scientists led by Dr Andrews has been working on for the last two decades and is close to finding cures that will change the way we live
our life forever.

A number of products using their breakthrough techology are already on the market and more powerful ones are in clinical trials.

In the lab they have already made immortal cells that never age or die at Harvard university has already reversed aging in rats and now the human trials are about to get underway.

You won't want to miss this cutting edge research. If you want to live a long and healthy life then you will want to hear what Dr Bill, Nobel prize winning scientist has to say. 

Dr Andrews was also one of two scientists featured in a netflix documentary called "The Immortalists" which follows their pursuit of the fountain of youth. Click this link to watch the trailer: The Immortalists

    I'm on the defy time website and see the other links on the bottom. Such an amazing interview. Amazing hearing about Badwater (and the blisters) La Ultra and the gall bladder attack, and wow 3 attempts on Barkley.
    With the telomeres, I can't get my mind around something like 500,000 trials. So much info, I must listen again sometime. Thank you for your sharing Bill. It would be like a ultra to do this.
    Inflammation, I try to lower. I must keep my sugar under 20 grams as you suggested.
    Thank you Bill and Lisa.
