Description


Por que algunas personas de 40 anos se ven de 60, mientras que otras de 60 anos se ven de 40?. La doctora Elizabeth Blackburn descubrio un indicador biologico llamado telomerasa, la enzima que reabastece los telomeros --los extremos de los cromosomas encargados de proteger nuestro patrimonio genetico. Las investigaciones de Elizabeth Blackburn y Elissa Epel demuestran que la longitud y la salud de los telomeros de cada persona son la base biologica de la conexion mente-cuerpo, por lo que los cambios que hagamos en nuestros habitos cotidianos pueden proteger nuestros telomeros e incrementar nuestros intervalos de salud (el numero de anos que permanecemos sanos, activos y libres de enfermedades). La solucion de los telomeros demuestra como la calidad del sueno, el ejercicio, la alimentacion, incluso ciertos productos quimicos afectan a nuestros telomeros y como el estres cronico, los pensamientos negativos, las relaciones tensas o los lugares peligrosos pueden acortarlos. Partiendo de una amplia investigacion, comparten listas de alimentos, tipos de ejercicios saludables para nuestros telomeros, trucos mentales para reducir el estres e informacion sobre como proteger a nuestros hijos contra el desarrollo de telomeros cortos y como mejorar nuestros espacios saludables a nivel comunitario --relaciones de confianza, espacios verdes y calles seguras. La solucion de los telomeros te hara reevaluar como llevas tu vida en el dia a dia. Es el primer libro que explica como envejecemos a nivel celular y como hacer cambios sencillos para mantener nuestros cromosomas y celulas saludables, permitiendonos permanecer sanos y tener vidas mas vitales y significativas. ENGLISH DESCRIPTIONThe New York Times bestselling book coauthored by the Nobel Prize winner who discovered telomerase and telomeres' role in the aging process and the health psychologist who has done original research into how specific lifestyle and psychological habits can protect telomeres, slowing disease and improving life. Have you wondered why some sixty-year-olds look and feel like forty-year-olds and why some forty-year-olds look and feel like sixty-year-olds? While many factors contribute to aging and illness, Dr. Elizabeth Blackburn discovered a biological indicator called telomerase, the enzyme that replenishes telomeres, which protect our genetic heritage. Dr. Blackburn and Dr. Elissa Epel's research shows that the length and health of one's telomeres are a biological underpinning of the long-hypothesized mind-body connection. They and other scientists have found that changes we can make to our daily habits can protect our telomeres and increase our health spans (the number of years we remain healthy, active, and disease-free). THE TELOMERE EFFECT reveals how Blackburn and Epel's findings, together with research from colleagues around the world, cumulatively show that sleep quality, exercise, aspects of diet, and even certain chemicals profoundly affect our telomeres, and that chronic stress, negative thoughts, strained relationships, and even the wrong neighborhoods can eat away at them. Drawing from this scientific body of knowledge, they share lists of foods and suggest amounts and types of exercise that are healthy for our telomeres, mind tricks you can use to protect yourself from stress, and information about how to protect your children against developing shorter telomeres, from pregnancy through adolescence. And they describe how we can improve our health spans at the community level, with neighborhoods characterized by trust, green spaces, and safe streets. THE TELOMERE EFFECT will make you reassess how you live your life on a day-to-day basis. It is the first book to explain how we age at a cellular level and how we can make simple changes to keep our chromosomes and cells healthy, allowing us to stay disease-free longer and live more vital and meaningful lives.
