The length and health of one's telomeres are a biological underpinning of the long hypothesized mind body connection They and other scientists have found that changes we can make to our daily habits can protect our telomeres and increase our health spans the number of years we remain healthy active and disease freeTHE TELOMERE EFFECT reveals how Blackburn and Epel's findings together with research from colleagues around the world cumulatively show that sleep uality exercise aspects of diet and even certain chemicals profoundly affect our telomeres and that chronic stress negative thoughts strained relationships and even the wrong neighborhoods can eat away at them Drawing from this scientific body of knowledge they sh. Breaking news exercise is useful in the fight against aging And here from a Nobel prize winning scientist is the science to back it up And by the way drink clean water eat organic fruits and vegetables; stay away from processed foods; develop a loving close knit social network All of these things will improve your telomeres which are those little things at the end of your DNA strands that look like the plastic piece at the end of your shoelaces which keep your shoelaces from unraveling

review ☆ eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF Ò Elizabeth Blackburn

The Telomere EffectThe New York Times bestselling book coauthored by the Nobel Prize winner who discovered telomerase and telomeres' role in the aging process and the health psychologist who has done original research into how specific lifestyle and psychological habits can protect telomeres slowing disease and improving lifeHave you wondered why some sixty year The Telomere eBook #227 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 Dr Elizabeth Blackburn discovered a biological indicator called telomerase the enzyme that replenishes telomeres which protect our genetic heritage Dr Blackburn and Dr Elissa Epel's research shows that. The new field of telomere research is fascinating Telomeres obviously have a big effect on our lives and on our aging Elizabeth Blackburn is a co discoverer of telomerase an enzyme that helps to replenish telomeres For this discovery she won the Nobel Prize in physiology She well deserves that prizeI generally enjoy reading science books when the author is a researcher in the field And since Elizabeth Blackburn is a leading scientist in the field of telomeres I thought this would be a superb book It is a very good book but I did not care much for its self help aspects Some research has shown that chronic stress helps to decrease the length of telomeres leading to rapid aging This book makes a big big deal out of this finding The book presents uizzes to the reader to help determine the role of stress in one's life There is lots of advice given about how to cope and manage stressNevertheless this is a very controversial area For example the metastudy about perceived stress and telomere length found that the correlation while statistically significant is very small So one of the major themes in the book is very much a uestionable hypothesis The book comes off feeling like a self help book recommending all the lifestyle changes that you can read about in many other places instead of a comprehensive look at the scientific field of telomere and telomerase research Frankly much of the book bored me
