Entropic and Telomere Shortening Theories of Aging
What is Aging, and How Does It Come to Take Place?
In January, 2002, a new theory about aging was formulated by two scientists, Leonid Garilov and Natalia Garilova, working in Chicago. This theory, that came to be known as the reliability theory of aging, stated that all living organisms are born with certain inherent flaws. As an organism ages, it suffers various shocks to its biological systems, and eventually breaks down. In a simple organism, one such breakdown causes death. However, more complex organisms such as humans have in built redundancy systems to insure that such deaths do not occur. However, the various shocks suffered by an organism do lead to damages that build up on top of the inherent damage that would already be in place. This is what, in a nutshell, aging really is. Eventually, an event occurs that causes enough damage to cripple one of the redundancy systems critically enough that the organism cannot recover, and death occurs.
