Virtual assistant AI that symbiotically optimizes your health

The underlying cause of aging and chronic disease is loss of epigenetic information. Chromatin Modifiers and histone code relocation causes epigenetic changes in response to DNA damage. Information loss as being the chief reason of aging has been proven recently in yeast cells and mice and all eukaryotes. In the event that DNA breaks (ex: UV Radiation), proteins that regulate gene expression move to help repair, resulting in gene expression changes. In young cells, this repairing process is reset upon completion of DNA repair. Not all proteins, however, return to their home location correctly, which leads to gene expression changes and a loss of cell identity.
