While I found the science behind the telomere discovery uite fascinating this book didn't work for me for a couple of reasons First I didn't like the narration It felt like I was sitting through a first grade class Second the title was misleading It read like a self help book So much so I thought this book was going to cover how to hold the fork and chew 2o timesto my total dismay it got so close to that I didn't appreciate this I wish this covered the science and left all that simple nonsense out So two stars

E length and health of one's telomeres are a biological underpinning of the long hypothesized mind body connection They and other scientists have found that changes we can make to our daily habits can protect our telomeres and increase our health spans the number of years we remain healthy active and disease freeTHE TELOMERE EFFECT reveals how Blackburn and Epel's findings together with research from colleagues around the world cumulatively show that sleep uality exercise aspects of diet and even certain chemicals profoundly affect our telomeres and that chronic stress negative thoughts strained relationships and even the wrong neighborhoods can eat away at them Drawing from this scientific body of knowledge they sh. I have to start by saying my PhD research was in this field I was SO excited to read Dr Blackburn's book since I have been out of the field for a decade As a scientist I found it much like reading a very long review I found myself wondering if in trying too hard to make it accessible it just got very dry This is an interesting field and the research has the potential or creating new treatments for a wide variety of problems Even as someone who knows the science well and is interested in the field it was rough The title says The New Science of Living Younger but I felt like it just rehashed the science that most people know Sleep well eat well exercise reduce stress and environmental toxins I was disappointedFull disclosure I received a copy of the book from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review

The Telomere EffectThe New York Times bestselling book coauthored by the Nobel Prize winner who discovered telomerase and telomeres' role in the aging process and the health psychologist who has done original research into how specific lifestyle and psychological habits can protect telomeres slowing disease and improving lifeHave you wondered why some sixty year The Telomere PDFEPUBolds look and feel like forty year olds and why some forty year olds look and feel like sixty year olds While many factors contribute to aging and illness Dr Elizabeth Blackburn discovered a biological indicator called telomerase the enzyme that replenishes telomeres which protect our genetic heritage Dr Blackburn and Dr Elissa Epel's research shows that th. The new field of telomere research is fascinating Telomeres obviously have a big effect on our lives and on our aging Elizabeth Blackburn is a co discoverer of telomerase an enzyme that helps to replenish telomeres For this discovery she won the Nobel Prize in physiology She well deserves that prizeI generally enjoy reading science books when the author is a researcher in the field And since Elizabeth Blackburn is a leading scientist in the field of telomeres I thought this would be a superb book It is a very good book but I did not care much for its self help aspects Some research has shown that chronic stress helps to decrease the length of telomeres leading to rapid aging This book makes a big big deal out of this finding The book presents uizzes to the reader to help determine the role of stress in one's life There is lots of advice given about how to cope and manage stressNevertheless this is a very controversial area For example the metastudy about perceived stress and telomere length found that the correlation while statistically significant is very small So one of the major themes in the book is very much a uestionable hypothesis The book comes off feeling like a self help book recommending all the lifestyle changes that you can read about in many other places instead of a comprehensive look at the scientific field of telomere and telomerase research Frankly much of the book bored me
