Have you ever wondered why some sixty-year-olds look and feel like forty-year-olds, and why some forty-year-olds look and feel like sixty-year-olds? More importantly - can you choose which outcome will happen to you? Written by Nobel Prize winner Elizabeth Blackburn and health psychologist Elissa Epel, The Telomere Effect reveals the ground-breaking science at the heart of ageing - and what you can do to help reverse it.

While many factors contribute to ageing and illness, Elizabeth and Elissa's award-winning research has revealed that the length of our telomeres - the part of our chromosomes which determine how fast our cells age and die - can have a direct effect on how quickly or slowly we age.

In this pioneering book, discover for the first time the many simple changes you can make to your diet, sleep and mental wellbeing to look after your telomeres. From which foods to eat, types of exercise to practise, various mind tricks to prevent stress - and how to shield your children from developing shorter telomeres from conception through to adolescence - start protecting your telomeres and your youth today.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Blackburn won a 2009 Nobel Prize for her discovery of telomeres: caps at the end of each strand of DNA that play an essential role in the ageing process. Epel is a psychologist who researches specific lifestyle habits which protect our telomeres, thus slowing down disease and lengthening life. In this compelling scientific guide, these eminent experts set out the things we can do to keep us vital and disease-free, from which foods to eat to the power of our minds over matter -- Caroline Sanderson * SUNDAY EXPRESS *

The Telomere Effect, however, is worth more serious attention. It is co-authored by Elizabeth Blackburn, a Nobel Prize winner for her research into telomeres, the part of our chromosomes
that determine how quickly our cells age and die. This is her attempt, along with the health psychologist Elissa Epel's, to translate the scientific lessons thus learned into 'language for the general reader'. She has done a compelling job. The book's central message is that
telomeres shorten as we age, and this underlying mechanism contributes to most diseases of ageing. The good news is that your lifestyle choices can do a lot to counteract it ... the argument here is refreshingly sensible and convincing. I predict that the T-word will soon be on everyone's lips.

-- Jenny McCartney * THE MAIL ON SUNDAY *
