The Telomere Effect, by Elizabeth Blackburn and Elissa Epel
- A biology researcher who in 2009 won the Nobel Prize in Physiology and Medicine for her work on telomeres.
Telomeres are the protective caps at the ends of our DNA strands and have been shown strongly connected to our aging right in our DNA at the cellular level.
Blackburn insists that we all have more control over this process than we realize. “Telomeres listen to you .. They listen to your behaviors, they listen to your state of mind.”
