Exercise helps maintain telomeres

In this 2008 study of twins, British researchers looked at 52 pairs of identical and 15 pairs of fraternal twins and concluded that exercise, even after controlling for confounding variables of age, BMI, smoking, year of sampling, and socioeconomic status, was associated with telomere length preservation.  The effect was 6 years of length for 100 minutes a week and 9 years of advantage for 3 hrs or more.

When we consider my stem cell theory of aging, we can understand how all the things that are good for you are actually working.  They are activating telomerase and keeping the stem cells preserved.  We see this effect with mediation and other behaviors and we know that longer telomeres, independent of everything we can think of, lowers mortality risk.

I graduated from Harvard with honors in Biological Anthropology prior to earning my Medical Degree and Masters in Public Health from Columbia University.

In 2007, I became the nineteenth patient to sign up for the use of a herbally-extracted telomerase activator.

The results were so positive that I founded Recharge Biomedical Clinic in 2008 and have since become the leading medical expert in this exciting new field of regenerative medicine treating over 1,300 patients with this exciting new telomerase activation medicine.

I won two Houston Film Festival Awards for my screenplays about Hypatia of Alexandria and Ed Brown of Kentucky.

In 2010 I wrote and self-published a Sci-Fi Graphic Novel called MAXIMUM LIFESPAN

In 2013, I wrote and published "Telomere Timebombs; Defusing the Terror of Aging"
