Telomere Biology may be the most promising medical (life and health -span extending) technology on the horizon today.
The Un-limiting Potential of Telomeres
“Telomere biology has the potential to extend human life span, to dramatically lower rates of the great remaining killer diseases: heart disease, stroke, and Alzheimer’s. All three diseases increase exponentially with age, and their toll will be slashed as we we learn how to address the body’s aging clocks.” (Dr. Josh Mitteldorf)
“It was no surprise to me. The science of telomere biology is the most important discovery in human history. We now understand the mechanism of aging and how to influence it. Life on this planet will never be the same.” (Dr. Al Sears)
“…clearly the most important biologic marker for aging ever discovered: the telomere.” (Dr. Dave)
“If we can slow the process of telomere loss, the fundamental cap on how often your cells can reproduce might be removed, or at least reduced,” (Dr Adam Rutherford, a geneticist and author of Creation: The Origin of Life)
“There are thousands of articles linking telomere shortening to disease and death and that the chances of this relationship between shorter telomeres and higher mortality being random is one million times LESS likely than the chances of you winning the Powerball lottery. What are the odds of your growing ill and dying if you do nothing and allow your telomeres to erode? About 999 in 1000. ” (Dr. Ed Park)
“If I’d known I was going to live this long, I’d have taken better care of myself.” (Eubie Blake, Centenarian, Chronological Age 100)
Life Choices – What is your Life worth?
How often do you think of your Healthspan and Lifespan when you make the following choices:
How much sleep to get on a regular basis?
How much exercise and what kind to do on a regular basis?
The food and supplement choices you make?
Where you get your information on health from?
Do you meditate regularly or not?
Have you had your Vitamin D or Omega 6 to 3 ratios tested on at least an annual basis?
Do you know what your telomere length is and have you checked in again a year or so later to see what direction things are headed?
Whether you know it or not, each and every one of those questions relates directly to the length of biological time clocks in your body known as Telomeres…
