I am happy to announce there is a new book on telomeres and health called “The Telomere Effect”
People who reported two types of exercise were 24 percent less likely to have short telomeres; three types of exercise were 29 percent less likely; and those who had participated in all four types of activities were 59 percent less likely to have very short 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.
