Comprehensive Online Library Developed by Telomere Diagnostics Provides Resources on Science of Telomeres

Reading time: 2 minutes

Telomere Diagnostics, the leader in telomere length measurement, a recognized biomarker for aging well, and creator of the patented TeloYears™ test, has developed the Telomere Learning Center, a comprehensive online library to educate the public on the science of telomeres. The fully searchable site (https://resources.teloyears.com) provides valuable resources to telomere-related content across a range of categories that is accessible free of charge.

“The TeloYears test was developed based on a large and growing body of scientific evidence showing that shorter telomeres are associated with a number of age-related diseases, and that lifestyle, genetic, environmental, and other factors can affect your telomere length and cellular age,” said Jason Shelton, CEO of Telomere Diagnostics. “We developed the Telomere Learning Center as the definitive online library of news and scientific research on telomere health and science for everyone interested in learning more and tracking telomere length. Because telomeres can change based on future lifestyle choices, both good and bad, it’s very important for everyone to be educated about this significant health biomarker.”

Visitors to the site can search on several broad topics to discover how telomeres work and what this means for human health and longevity. The first category provides links to basic overviews of telomeres and their function. Subsequent categories focus on the relationship between telomere length and aging; the dietary habits that associate with longer telomeres; the ways in which exercise is associated with longer telomeres and better health outcomes; the association between healthy sleep behaviors and longer telomeres; how stress and the ways we react to it impact telomere length; and findings on the links between telomeres and medical conditions ranging from Alzheimer’s to cardiovascular disease to diabetes.
