Not sure how something that lengthens telomeres is overplayed crap since dying of "old age" basically is your telomeres running out of length to replicate properly.
It's the only thing proven to lengthen telomeres. Now we don't know if any side effects come with this yet, and as one researcher said, cancer cells don't lose telomere length when replicating, so we don't want to extend life and be a giant tumor for a good portion of it.
That being said this opens the door to possibilities and further research that was considered fantasyland a few decades ago...whether this ultimately is useful in and of itself or it simply was the key to opening a floodgates of other knowledge and research that ultimately lead to an answer we don't know yet...but it certainly isn't overhyped. If anything I'd argue its underhyped since I never heard of it until reading this and then researched it
Epitalon sounds great on paper... has anyone already tried it?
