Realize your longevity potential with a plan Based on Nobel Prize-winning research. The Immortality Edge: Realize the Secrets of Your Telomeres for a Longer, Healthier Life (Wiley, 2011) is a unique longevity regimen written by Michael Fossel, MD, PhD, Greta Blackburn, and Dave Woynarowski, MD.
Telomeres play an important role in protecting our chromosomes from critical damage. The shortening of the telomere disrupts vital cellular function and promotes the previously seemingly inevitable onset of aging and various diseases, including cancer and Alzheimer’s. Drawing from the groundbreaking discoveries about telomeres that won the 2009 Nobel Prize in Medicine, this book includes a highly prescriptive program that shows you how to live longer by slowing telomere shortening and by rejuvenating your cells through relatively simple alterations in nutrition and lifestyle.
The exciting news in this book about telomeres promises to revolutionize your approach to longevity. Even better is that The Immortality Edge lays out a realistic, easy-to-follow plan that fits into any busy schedule!
