Blackburn, a Nobel Prize winner in Physiology, and Epel, a UCSF Psychiatry professor, combine their research and experience to present a brilliant but very readable discovery on chromosome health. The subject, Telomeres, are presented as microscopic caps attached to the ends of each chromosome. Without their lasting and healthy condition, the chromosomes are less protected.
The Authors explain that if we cultivate behaviors and conditions that encourage telomere growth, our health and vitality are generally positively affected. If however we ignore our telomeres or take on behaviors that reduce their health, then our cell level growth and cell reproduction will, over time be negatively affected.
The influences and considerations regarding our ability to improve our telomeres is discussed with engaging thought and is remarkably easy to understand considering the academic and research depth of its authors.
