"Blackburn and Epel demonstrate that how we live each day has a profound effect not just on our health and well-being, but how we age, as well. It's a manual for how to live younger and longer."--Arianna Huffington

"An extraordinary, illuminating synthesis of biological and psychosocial factors that enhance healthful longevity by their effects on telomeres. These new advances in knowledge enable people to attain longer, healthier lives."--Albert Bandura, professor emeritus, Stanford University, United States National Medal of Science awardee
"THE TELOMERE EFFECT gives us, in high relief and with exactly the practical level of detail we need, the long and the short of a new science revealing that how we live our lives, both inwardly and outwardly, individually and collectively, impinges significantly on our health, our well-being, and even our longevity. Mindfulness is a key ingredient, and importantly, issues of poverty and social justice are shown to clearly come into play as well. This book is an invaluable, rigorously authentic, and at its core, exceedingly compassionate and wise contribution to our understanding of health and well-being.--Jon Kabat-Zinn, author of Full Catastrophe Living --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This book gives an account of how DNA works and the role played by the telomere. It tells us how stress (even from childhood) can affect the length and quality of our telomeres. The authors subscribe to the view that our emotional health plays a part, as do physical well-being. That includes the right diet, plenty of exercise, and sufficient sleep.
Things and food that cause inflammation in our bodies are no good for telomeres. Smoking and sugar are bad (nothing new here) but random tests have shown (the authors say) that four cups of coffee a day for a month can lengthen telomeres and lower oxidative stress in the body.
The chapters on pregnancy and raising children seem a little like chapters from a pregnancy and parenting book, but the authors explain their relationship and importance to the well-being of our telomere. Before the reader runs out for a commercial telomere test lab to measure the length and health of his telomeres, the authors duly warn that the commercial labs running such tests are largely unregulated.
