This discussion is based on an article from the Rosicrucian Digest October 1978. Each cell contains a nucleus with genetic information stored in the DNA. Chromosomes in each cell control heredity. DNA is the chief component in chromosomes. Chromosomes carry the genetic code. As cells split and new cells are formed, each new cell has its own set of chromosomes with a complete ser of encoded information governing the cell’s hereditary characteristics. Genetic research has disclosed that human cells can divide only a limited number of times before all descendants age and die. The death of such cells is an expression of aging at the single-cell level. The genetic limit is believed to be carried in the chains of the DNA. There are several theories of probable causes of aging. One theory is: RNA is produced by the DNA could be a factor in aging. Other theories are discussed in the article. The article concludes (in 1978) that in the future, we can look forward to staving off and delaying old age.
Nowadays, there is much discussion about the role of telomeres and other discussion about the effects medical interference.
