    The nuts and bolts of aging: Part two (Waking up our vital cells with hormones and anti-cancer–inducing nutrients) In Part one of this article, I established that our potential lifespans are determined by repair mechanisms that kick into effect during our mid-twenties. At this benchmark, the aging process starts because random molecular damages begin to exceed repairs. Therefore, we should be examining the underlying causes of aging and the consequent repair of our disintegrating ...
