The telomere theory of aging is one of the most prominent longevity concepts. In this video, you are going to learn which foods and lifestyle habits keep them healthy.
You know that friend of yours who is over 40 but doesn’t look like it? Or that person that’s so much older than you, but who has the energy and good disposition of someone younger?
Most of the time, we tend to believe this is due to “good genes,” which is partly true. But science seems to be getting closer and closer to understanding the “secret” behind these people’s longevity.
Just like our appearance gives us clues about our chronological age (white hair and wrinkles) inside our bodies it’s also possible to know how old we are.
And that answer may be in our telomeres, the end of our chromosomes.
Elizabeth Blackburn, a researcher whose work earned her a Nobel Prize in Medicine in 2009, was the person who discovered this relationship. She is also the author of a book – The Telomere Effect – which explains how our diet, physical activity, mental health, and even our social relations influence the length of our telomeres.
