The Long Long Life team will be putting together a set of videos in the months ahead, one for each of the Hallmarks of Aging.

This is evidently the case for cancer risk, as cancer is caused by mutations that enable rampant, unregulated growth, but may only be important otherwise when mutations occur in stem cells or progenitor cells that are able to propagate the mutations widely in tissues.
