How to lengthen your telomeres

We’ll talk tomorrow about telomeres, those little end-caps on your chromosomes that shorten over time, contributing to the aging process. It turns out that all those lifestyle changes the media keep harping on may actually have a significant effect on our telomeres. While eating right and meditating won’t make you immortal, they may actually lengthen your telomeres, which is a revolutionary finding. And apparently this works even for people that already have cancer, as a recent Lancet study showed. I’m going to yoga tomorrow.
