When a Nobel Prize winner in medicine tells you to pay attention to your cellular health, you need to listen. Dr. Elizabeth Blackburn, president of the prestigious Salk Institute and winner of the 2009 Nobel Prize for Medicine, is a pioneering researcher in telomeres, the caps at the end of our chromosomes that can shorten as we age, thus contributing to the arrival of various age-related diseases. But Dr. Blackburn has discovered that in our own lives, with our own behavior, we can lengthen our telomeres and in the process, live longer and healthier. Her new book, The Telomere Effect, co-written with health psychologist Elissa Epel, outlines the changes you can make in your life that really will make healthier aging a reality. Turns out nature and nurture work in tandem to keep you healthy. To learn more about this important new book, Read Here. And to listen to a fascinating radio interview with Drs.
