Is the virus invading our bodies, this Twitter user thinks it might be? Could it be making every cell that the COVID spike protein invades “senescent”? (Senescence or biological aging is the gradual deterioration of functional characteristics in living organisms. The word senescence can refer to either cellular senescence or to senescence of the whole organism.)

For anyone who wants to understand this concept, watch the video below.

ZOMBIE CELLS!!! What are they, and how the heck do I get rid of them? In this video, we’ll be taking a look a cellular senescence…and what to do about it. We’ll be talking about the causes of cellular senescence, including telomere erosion, and the effects that senescent cells can have on their environment and their neighboring cells. Then we’ll turn out focus towards how to get rid of them. We’ll discuss how senolytics work and then examine several of the best senolytics.
