Latest Dr. Richard Miller ITP interview -GPLD1

From the Sheekey Science Show. A great channel to watch as she is a postdoc focusing on senescent cell research.

The video mentions something i had never heard before. That lomgevity has been linked to cap independent translation. Rapamycin and other longevity hacks block cap dependent translation forcing cells to use the independent version. This is related to GPLD1.


So, it seems that cap independent translation is involved in diet longevity, genetic longevity and the results of the big longevity drugs like rapamycin. Is this the key factor? Should we just always be using cap independent translation in order to live longer?
