Theories Of Aging

Errors and Repairs Theory

In 1963 Dr. Leslie Orgel of the Salk Institute suggested that because the "machinery for making protein in cells is so essential, an error in that machinery could be catastrophic." The production of proteins and the reproduction of DNA sometimes is not carried out with accuracy. The body's DNA is so vital that natural repair processes kick in when an error is made. But the system is incapable of making perfect repairs on these molecules every time, therefore the accumulation of these flawed molecules can cause diseases and other age changes to occur. If DNA repair processes did not exist, scientists estimate that enough damage would accumulate in cells in one year to make them nonfunctional.

I don't want to
achieve immortality
through my work;
I want to achieve
immortality through
not dying.
