How To Kill Zombie Cells To Slow Aging

Episode 634 19m


Each of us is made up of an estimated 30 trillion cells, all of which work together in harmony to perform all of the functions necessary for us to survive from day to day and year to year. But sometimes cells go rogue and don’t conform to the normal cell life cycle. When that happens, we end up with cells in our body that start to cause damage. These rogue cells, called senescent or “zombie” cells, release inflammatory chemicals that contribute to all manner of health issues—osteoarthritis, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, and Alzheimer’s, to name just a few.

In today’s episode of my series I’m calling Health Bites, I am talking all about zombie cells—what they are, how they develop, and how we can get rid of them.
