Gene therapy is changing the way we treat disease, but can it also turn back the hands of the clock and buy you more time? A new clinical trial claims it can reverse aging but it costs 1 million dollars to participate. The gene therapy, happening in Colombia, claims to lengthen human telomeres. Molecular biologist Dr. Bill Andrews thinks this is a great idea and considers aging a terminal disease. Plus, Bioethicist Dr. Craig Klugman shares why he’s against anti-aging clinical trials and that aging is a stage of life.
