TORONTO, May 8, 2013 /CNW/ - The Executive Health Centre today
officially launches its innovative Telomere Performance Program that focuses on the Nobel Prize winning science of telomeres. This
one-of-a-kind health action plan includes a new test of telomere length
that reveals a person's true health status and biological age.
"Telomere Science has come of age," says Dr. Elaine Chin, Founder and
Chief Medical Officer, Executive Health Centre, leaders in personalized medicine. "Thanks to scientists like Dr.
Elizabeth Blackburn (winner of the 2009 Nobel Prize in Medicine and one
of Time Magazine's 100 Most Influential People), we now have a solid
understanding of what telomeres are telling us. We know how to manage
lifestyle, hormones, and disease risk factors to preserve telomere
length and we can measure them to track improving health. Our
telomere-based program is an exciting step forward for personalized
preventive health care."
Dr. Chin hosts Dr. Blackburn's speaking engagements in Toronto, May 15-16. Quoted on ABC, Dr. Blackburn said the discovery
of the telomerase enzyme "sort of translates into a fountain of youth;
the number of years of healthy living is related to telomere length. We
don't think clocks will be turned back, but it is a question of whether
we will extend our health span."
Chin's team has incorporated Blackburn's research into its Telomere
Performance Program, which augments the Centre's established and
recognized health programs. "We're confident our clients will be the
first to realize the benefits of their 'built in health warning system'
- their telomeres," says Chin.
"Telomere testing at Executive Health has been insightful for our
clients in further personalizing their health action plans and
motivating them to continue to improve their health," says Chin. Now
the Centre has launched www.StoppingtheClock.ca so more people can be aware of what their telomeres can tell them about
their health and their future.
