Black don’t Crack Ambassadors (#BDCA):
Our melanated tribe continues to defy the effects of ageing. I mean; look at Miss Cicely Tyson, our reigning queen of #BDCA, and all the other amazing melanated humans who radiate the world with their beauty. This amazing trait is due to having long telomeres.
Telomeres are sequences found at the end of chromosomes; they prevent chromosome deterioration, and the fusion with other chromosomes. Studies have shown that they have been linked to ageing and diseases (long telomeres=good, and we got that!!).
