43:30 – Dr. Ben asks Hanna to share this test from a cancer perspective.


45:50 – Hannah shares about another interesting report within the testing.  Then, she and Dr. Ben have a discussion about who could benefit from this test.


52:10 – Hannah shares her top changes one could make to have the greatest impact on aging.


53:14 – Dr. Ben asks Hannah to speak to a future report they have coming relating to tobacco and alcohol consumption.


54:27 – Hannah shares the mechanics of how to go about getting this test done.  She finishes with her final thoughts about most blood testing being replaced by methylation testing, like this, in the future.


57:00 – Dr. Ben closes by giving some information about our wellness program.  You can get more information on this testing by e-mailing lab@veritasmedical.com.
