Theories Of Aging

Death Hormone Theory (DECO)

Unlike other cells brain cells or neurons do not replicate. We are born with roughly 12 billion of them and over a life time about 10 percent perish. Dr. Donner Denckle, an endocrinologist formerly at Harvard University, was convinced that the "death hormone" or DECO (decreasing oxygen consumption hormone) released by the pituitary glands of rats their immune systems revitalized, the rate of cross-linking in cells reduced and cardiovascular function was restored to the levels of youth. Denckle speculated that as we age the pituitary begins to release DECO which inhibits the ability of cells to use thyroxine, a hormone produced by the thyroid-governing basal metabolism, the rate at which cells convert food to energy. The metabolic rate bring on and accelerate the process of aging.
