Recommended Reading: The Telomere Effect
Yesterday we posted about new research on telomeres, the DNA caps at the end of our chromosomes that impact aging and disease. If you are wanting to learn more about this incredible topic, we encourage you to read, The Telomere Effect: A Revolutionary Approach to Living Younger, Healthier, Longer. One of the co-authors is Elisabeth Blackburn, the world leading expert on the topic, and a winner of the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 2009. The book is not highly technical, but is written in a understandable manner with practical, specific lifestyle and psychological habits that can protect telomeres, slow disease and improve life. You can order the book through this Amazon affiliate LINK.
UPDATE: We also have a free, downloadable, special edition excerpt of the book available here: LINK
