“We think about our bodies as a barrel, and everything that we’ve been exposed to over the course of our lifetime gets dumped in our bodies, and dumped in our barrel. At some point, we reach a threshold in which we just can’t tolerate those exposures. So if our barrel gets filled up early on, we’re going to express symptoms earlier on.”
