How age, parenthood, sport and alcohol affect telomere length

Highlights The most harmful alcohol for your telomeres is beer. Only anaerobic exercises prolong telomeres in people between the ages of 20-50. Older dads seem to give their offspring longer telomeres. In the age of health awareness and advanced medicine, when everyone wants to be strong and fit, it is hard to find an individual […]

Measuring telomeres:
buccal swab or
blood-based?

Telomere length measurement can be done a variety of ways on cells throughout the body, but is most often done using a blood or saliva-based method. There are advantages to both, and are likely each appropriate for different clinical and research areas. Titanovo is the only commercial entity to offer a buccal-swab based,

Dieting: A genetic
approach

Are telomeres biological clocks? We at Titanovo have been doing commercial telomere length testing for a few years now, so naturally we accumulated some data to look at correlations. While it’s a bit early to publish any findings in a journal, I’d like to disclose some observations and key thoughts I am starting to believe

Genetics and happiness (or the relative lack thereof)

Have you ever met a person that hardly ever looks happy? For some, the sun in the sky and the breeze on the ocean is a cause for celebration, while for other it is irrelevant to their happiness. Apparently, the weather is not the issue. Genetics play a huge role in whether positive events improve […]

The difficulty in turning actions into habits: why genetics are to blame

It’s Monday today, so it looks like we’ll try to start going to the gym for yet another week (or learning Chinese, quitting smoking and drinking, whatever). And for sure we’ll be doing it for the 21 days that are necessary to establish a new habit, right? Maybe not. The good news is that habits […]

How we became humans thanks to exercise

For those of you who have somehow skipped 150 years of science: we have evolved from hominid apes. 2 Million years ago, these ancestors of ours enjoyed quite a short life of not more than 30 years – the same lifespan of chimpanzees today. But some 1,8 million years ago, our lifespan began increasing. And […]

Eating Well in the New Year

Many people start off the new year with fitness goals, whether it be to log more hours at the gym, to cut sugars from their diet, or to try vegetarianism. While we have all heard the ire of gym-nuts about the yearly influx of new fitness-enthusiasts at the local gym, attempts at living healthier should […]

The effects of DNA on Weight Management

Weight gain over the years is usually a fact of life. As we age, our metabolism slows, and it becomes increasingly difficult to fight off a modest bulge in our bellies. However, the amount of weight gain varies widely, and is largely due to genetics. The genes rs10885406 and s7903146 can be used as markers […]

Coffee Consumption: Is it good for you?

We all love coffee thanks to the positive effect that caffeine has on our minds, making us productive, focused, and alert. But coffee consumption is not equal for everyone; genetics play a key role in whether it also has additional health benefits. Some studies have shown that caffeine can be harmful for you heart, while […]
