The Telomere effect
|The Telomere effect
Elizabeth Blackburn and Elissa Epel
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? More importantly - can you choose which outcome will happen to you? Written by Nobel Prize winner Elizabeth Blackburn and health psychologist Elissa Epel, The Telomere Effect reveals the ground-breaking science at the heart of ageing - and what you can do to help reverse it.
While many factors contribute to ageing and illness, Elizabeth and Elissa's award-winning research has revealed that the length of our telomeres - the part of our chromosomes which determine how fast our cells age and die - can have a direct effect on how quickly or slowly we age.
In this pioneering book, discover for the first time the many simple changes you can make to your diet, sleep and mental wellbeing to look after your telomeres. From which foods to eat, types of exercise to practise, various mind tricks to prevent stress - and how to shield your children from developing shorter telomeres from conception through to adolescence - start protecting your telomeres and your youth today.
