    As we age protein synthesis decreases.

    I agree. To synthesise a protein it have to go through unfolding the DNA and so it means that one telomer have to be shortened and so the synthesis in number probably will decrease ?

    Thinking in term of skin . since the skin have a low turn over and at the same time is exposed to UV and oxidation from oxygen exposure , some crosslinking of collagen might take place.

    I guess, if you say so....

    Got me. My daughter has a degree in Molecular Genetics, I however do not know shit about biology and am not really that interested in the nitty-gritty aspects of it.

    Skin has quite a high turnover rate for understandable reasons. Epidermal cells are replaced every 20 days or so.

    The chemicals such as lanolin, may change these numbers. Hope so
