The reprogramming of epigenetics via the Informational Theory of Aging | David Sinclair

Parent Episode: Dr. David Sinclair on Informational Theory of Aging, Nicotinamide Mononucleotide, Resveratrol & More

The processes that mediate aging can be likened to those that drive the sharing of digital information – the idea that, as a signal is transmitted, information is lost and must be continually resent to maintain signal integrity. This concept forms the basis of the Informational Theory of Aging, an idea put forth by Dr. Sinclair and elaborated upon in his book Lifespan, in which he analogizes aspects of the epigenetic signature of aging and its ability to be reset to the signal correction capabilities of TCP/IP protocol. In this clip, Dr. David Sinclair elaborates on his Informational Theory of Aging.
