Text Quotes
I’ve only actively promoted what we always hope is good science  (Elizabeth Blackburn Quotes) Checking your telomere length is a bit like weighing yourself: you get this single number which depends on a lot of factors. Telomere length gives a sense of your underlying health.  (Elizabeth Blackburn Quotes) In my early work, our molecular views of telomeres were first focused on the DNA  (Elizabeth Blackburn Quotes) Observational studies show that exercise, nutritional supplements and reducing psychological stress can help. Chronic high stress and smoking can lead to accelerated telomere shortening.  (Elizabeth Blackburn Quotes) Exercise mitigates the effects of stress - and stress, we know, shortens telomeres. In fact, early studies indicate that stress reduction techniques like meditation help people maintain the length of their telomeres.  (Elizabeth Blackburn Quotes) Cancer cells have a lot of other things that are really wrong with them, and we should never forget that these are cells that have become deaf to all the signals that the body sends out, such as you can multiply a certain amount, you can be in a certain place in the body, where to stay, where to move, and so on.  (Elizabeth Blackburn Quotes) When scientists get old, they get interested in the brain, and I’m a little bit afraid I’m falling into that.  (Elizabeth Blackburn Quotes) I’m pretty good about getting some exercise every day - well, most days. The secret for me was to put the elliptical in front of the TV.  (Elizabeth Blackburn Quotes) I was born in the small city of Hobart in Tasmania, Australia, in 1948. My parents were family physicians. My grandfather and great grandfather on my mother’s side were geologists.  (Elizabeth Blackburn Quotes) The goal is to learn more about telomere length and other markers of ageing, how best to measure these markers, how they are related to health and lifestyle, and how people respond to learning their own telomere length results.  (Elizabeth Blackburn Quotes) Medicine has been successful by treating diseases in a very specific way once the damage is done. But telomere length integrates a lot of factors together and gives you an overall picture of risk for what is now emerging as a lot of diseases that tend to occur together, such as diabetes and heart disease.  (Elizabeth Blackburn Quotes) As maize became important for human food worldwide, modern agricultural research on maize breeding continued the corn breeding begun thousands of years ago in the Central American highlands.  (Elizabeth Blackburn Quotes) Challenges in medicine are moving from ‘Treat the symptoms after the house is on fire’ to ‘Can we preserve the house intact?’  (Elizabeth Blackburn Quotes) Perhaps arising from a fascination with animals, biology seemed the most interesting of sciences to me as a child.  (Elizabeth Blackburn Quotes) I spent my first 4 years living in the tiny town of Snug, by the sea near Hobart. Curious about animals, I would pick up ants in our backyard and jellyfish on the beach.  (Elizabeth Blackburn Quotes) Being senior enough in the field, having enough solidity, I don’t feel afraid of being marginalized.  (Elizabeth Blackburn Quotes) Studying organisms at a molecular level was totally compelling because it was moving from being a naturalist, which was the 19th-century kind of science, to being very focused and really getting to the heart of these molecules.  (Elizabeth Blackburn Quotes) We’re involved in a very large study that’s federally funded and being done with Kaiser Permanente, and saliva is a very non-invasive way to get cells from the body.  (Elizabeth Blackburn Quotes) If we think of our chromosomes - they carry our genetic material - as being like shoelaces, I work on the plastic tips at the end that protect them.  (Elizabeth Blackburn Quotes) Researchers have found that the brain definitely sends nerves directly to organs of the immune system and not just to the heart and the lower gut. In that way, too, the brain is influencing the body.  (Elizabeth Blackburn Quotes) One characteristic aspect of ageing is the increased susceptibility to disease, particularly age-related diseases such as cardiovascular diseases and cancer.  (Elizabeth Blackburn Quotes) This enzyme, called telomerase, slows the rate at which telomeres degrade, and research indicates that healthy people with longer telomeres have less risk of developing the common illnesses of aging - like heart disease, diabetes, and cancer, which are three big killers today.  (Elizabeth Blackburn Quotes)
