If you haven’t heard much about Telomeres, you soon will!

They are the ends of the Chromosomes on every cell in your body; the Nobel Prize was recently awarded to scientists who’ve identified them as a biological clock closely tied to living a longer, healthier life. We’ve created agemarker.com to keep you informed on the latest developments on this important science and– most importantly–how you can apply it to your life.
