Telomeres.. Im going to lead with this today. Have you heard of them? Telomeres are end caps which live on each one of our Double Helix (DNA) like the ends of a shoe lace. Our DNA is not unlike our cells in that they have a protective shield which surround them. When the Protective coat around the DNA starts to break down, that is when aging begins to accelerate and chronic disease may take hold. While there are many lifestyle and genetic factors which determine Telomere health, Science has identified important steps that we can take to increase the length of our telomeres and our life span.
I have to admit that when I am in your kitchen, I am totally judging you by the type of oils you use to cook with. Why? The reason is that not all oils are created the same and therefore cannot be used across all types of cooking. Some go on salads, some for sautéing , and some for frying.
