**Figure 4.** **Lifespan, short telomeres, and DNA damage.** (**A**) Maximum lifespan vs rate of increase of % short telomeres fit with a linear regression line. (**B**) Maximum lifespan vs rate of increase of % short telomeres fit with a power law regression line. (**C**) Average lifespan vs rate of increase of % short telomeres fit with a linear regression line. (**D**) Average lifespan vs rate of increase of % short telomeres fit with a power law regression line. (**E**) Rate of increase of percentage of short telomeres vs. rate of γH2AX increase.
