The Truth About Ageing

1 x 50 HD
Broadcaster:  NHK

99% of our blood vessels are said to be tiny capillaries. With age, these miniscule tubules break, becoming hollow 'ghost' vessels, and this is what causes wrinkles in the skin.

 

Doctors are now finding that ghost vessels also increase risks of many age-related ailments, including osteoporosis and Alzheimer’s.

 

But thankfully, their is evidence to say that with the right self-treatment, ghost vessels can be brought back to life. Using the latest in biological imaging and super-high-resolution 3D CGI, The Truth About Ageing delves into the process behind broken capillaries. It also examines how to slow down or repair the damage to help us live longer, healthier lives.
