This is Health Matters, reporting on how cells age and how this impacts the health of elders. And, it turns out, the the health of the not-so- old as well. “Every strand of DNA, they found, has a cap on each end. Sort of like a shoelace. In the decades since, researchers have determined that these caps serve a protective function.”

Health Matters is a production of KIDE Hoopa CA.  Produced and written by Cynthia Poten. Engineered by Joseph Orozco. Our readers were Kristen Marshall, Taushona Moon and Joseph Orozco. Thank you for listening. Your health adds to the health of our community.
