Why does ageing necessarily have anything to do with DNA damage? Not
all of the information content of DNA is contained in the nucleotide
sequence. It may also be likely that ageing is due to a disruption of
chromatin structure. Perhaps even with something like when a gene
is replicated in mitosis. I think ageing is a far more complex than
can be described in narrow terms.
