With each DNA cell division these telomeres get shorter, so as we age they wear away like a candle wick burning down. Now there is evidence that telomeres can re-grow if people switch to, and maintain, a healthy lifestyle.

Previous studies comparing telomere lengths in individuals against the population as a whole suggest that shorter telomeres are linked with ill health, including heart disease, dementia and cancer, and also with a shorter lifespan.
