Transcript: It seems like we say the same thing over and over about all the damage that’s going on with all the chemicals, the exposure to toxins in the air, in the food, in the water, et cetera. But, when you look at the body we’re composed of 100-trillion cells and if you zoom-in on each one of those cells it would be like a balloon full of water, let’s say, and inside that balloon full of water is your nucleus, and inside of that is your chromosomes and your genes and everything else.
Now picture yourself with a 50-caliber machine gun and you’re going boom, boom, boom, boom, and you’re shooting that balloon full of water at 500 rounds a day, except the rounds of ammunition are pesticide molecules and insecticide molecules, GMO molecules, and they’re going in, and all of the sudden the balloon fixes itself right away so it doesn’t leak. And then all of these things that are coming in, heavy metals, that’s the attack that we’re having on our cells every single day.
So what happens is all these chemicals and toxins accumulate inside the cell, and you’re obviously going to have damage to the cell membrane, number one, because you’re shooting all these things into it. You’re going to have damage to the intro-cellular fluid, which is really nothing more than seawater. All of that effects the mitochondrial function. It effects the DNA function. It effects every single part of the cell. So the cell becomes damaged and toxic because of all these chemicals and toxins coming in and has a hard time repairing itself because the cell has to work extra hard.
In 2009 a group of scientists received the Nobel Prize for anti-aging, or cellular protection, developments when they discovered what are called telomeres. Telomeres are tiny little ends to the chromosomes, they’re on the tips of the chromosomes. When you’re conceived you’re born with 15,000 base pairs of telomeres. When you’re born, you only have 10,000 base pairs of telomeres. When you have 5,000 telomeres, you die.
So, each time the cell replicates, in other words if you go back to that analogy of getting shot with all these chemicals and toxins into the cell every day, the cell gets damaged beyond repair and then has to replicate into another cell. Every time the cell replicates into another cell you lose some of these telomeres.
