Happy Mother’s Day! – how your mom’s stress level determined the most critical birthday present you will ever get

This study suggests that maternal stress can contribute to newborn telomere shortening. I have always said that the process of inadequate telomere repair and maintenance are universal – from conception to grave.


maternal stress and fetal telomeres



Here’s a nice Mother’s Day present for me.  The birth announcement of our 43 yo previously infertile mom, Nina. Since taking TA-65, she has had two healthy boys.  Read about her amazing story in my book, “Telomere Timebombs” of in this video about female fertility.

Hi Ed,

I just wanted to let you know that my second son was born a week ago. Leo is fine and I could not be happier. I want to start taking TA again and wanted to ask you if I should start with 4 capsules before nighttime or just 2? Hope to hear from you. I am going to Los Angeles in winter and woud love to meet you finally. You are doing such a great job with your blog

Hope to hear from you,


Nina stopped taking TA during both pregnancies and although I wish she could have continued. It would have helped her with stress and according to the study above, perhaps that would have helped baby as well.  Theoretically, it could increase the natural lifespan of baby if telomere attrition could be slowed in utero. That is why one of the first studies that I want to do with ProBonoTrials.org is to see what taking a telomerase activator throughout pregnancy would do to a test mammal’s telomere length and whether embryonic and fetal development would be normal.

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"
