The Importance of DNA Repair

DNA is the blueprint that contains the instructions on how to build each individual cell that makes up the human body. When we are young the DNA blueprint is usually not damaged and so the cells that are made using that blueprint are perfectly healthy cells.

Unfortunately, as we age and we are exposed to more and more toxins our DNA blueprint can become damaged. Then, when the body makes new cells using the damaged blueprint those new cells won't be perfect cells as they were before.

Getting older means wearing out. But it's not just muscles, joints and organs that suffer. The older we get, the more damage we do to our own individual blueprint for life, our DNA, and the consequences of a lifetime's DNA damage could be a range of degenerative diseases and cancers. But there is something we can do about it. We can use supplements that aid the body in repairing the DNA structure.

Below is the link to an interview that was done by Paul Willis in which he interviewed Dr. Michael Fenech, a researcher at the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization (CSIRO), who has been doing clinical research on DNA and how it relates to the aging process.
