This is the first book to explain how we age at a cellular level and how we can make simple changes to keep our chromosomes and cells healthy, allowing us to stay disease-free and live longer. This book is co-authored by Dr. Elizabeth Blackburn, president of the Salk Institute and winner of Nobel Prize for her discovery of telomerase. Blackburn says that sleep quality, exercise, diet, and chemicals profoundly affect our telomeres, and that chronic stress, negative thoughts, strained relationships, and even the wrong neighborhoods can eat away at them. She shares lists of foods and suggests types of exercise that are healthy for our telomeres.
