The Telomere Effect by Dr. Elissa Epel & Dr. Elizabeth J. Blackburn

A Revolutionary Approach to Living Younger, Healthier, Longer

You may know that the lifestyle choices you make play an integral role in your health, but what you may not know is that this occurs on a cellular level. Food choices, exercise habits, sleep patterns, stress levels, negative thoughts, and even exposure to chemicals affect the telomeres in your body, DNA that live on the ends of chromosomes and protect your genetic heritage. By taking certain actions in your life and adopting specific habits, you can protect your telomeres and live a healthier, vibrant, and more meaningful life.
