Description

A groundbreaking book by the Nobel Prize winner who discovered telomeres, telomerase, and their role in the aging process, and the psychologist who researched specific lifestyle habits to protect them, slow down disease, and lengthen life. Have you ever wondered why some sixty-year olds look and feel like forty-year-olds and why some forty-year-olds look and feel like sixty-year-olds? While many factors contribute to aging and illness, Nobel Prize winner, Dr. Elizabeth Blackburn, discovered that biological markers, called telomerase, the enzyme that replenishes telomeres, protect our DNA from aging. Dr. Blackburn discovered that the length and health of one's telomeres provides a biological basis for the long hypothesized mind-body connection. But perhaps more importantly, along with leading health psychologist, Dr. Elissa Epel, she discovered that there are things we can do to improve and lengthen our telomeres to keep us vital and disease free. The Telomere Effect will help people increase their lifespan and healthspan (the number of years that individuals remain healthy and active), including information on how sleep, exercise, and diet profoundly affect our telomeres, and how chronic stress can eat away at our telomeres. Included are lists of which foods are healthy for our telomeres; how aging begins in utero: mothers who are highly stressed during pregnancy have children with shorter telomeres; and how thinking you are young and vital helps keep you that way!
