    Have you wondered why some 60-year-olds look and feel like 40-year-olds and why some 40-year-olds look and feel like 60-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 length and health of one's telomeres are a biological underpinning of the long-hypothesized mind-body connection.

    Nobel Prize winner Dr Elizabeth Blackburn and leading health psychologist Dr Elissa Epel have discovered biological markers called telomeres, which can help us to understand how healthy our cells are and what we can do to improve them. The Telomere Effect looks at ideas including how biological age is not chronological age, a biological basis for the mind-body connection and how sleep and diet can affect telomeres.
