I am happy to announce there is a new book on telomeres and health called “The Telomere Effect”
Researchers looked at umbilical cord blood samples from 54 newborns and found that lower Socioeconomic status and education were highly correlated with shorter newborn telomeres.
They concluded that for whites, poverty was associated with big differences in telemeres versus the wealthier whites. For blacks, there was no effect of poverty upon telomeres, and for Mexicans, poverty was associated with longer telomeres
Children who are ‘acting out’ have shorter telomeres
In this 9-minute video, I explain the association between stress and my stem cell theory of aging and disease. The final common pathway seems to be inadequate restoration, primarily via poor quality sleep and therefore inadequate telomerase activity.
