Wall Street Journal Article - Article Synopsis - DNA units, known as telomeres, act like the plastic caps at the ends of a shoelace, preventing the chromosomes from fraying and the genes inside them from unraveling. In 2009, three U.S. scientists won the Nobel Prize in medicine for illuminating the mysteries of telomere support.

Interview with Dr. William Andrews of Sierra Sciences - World's foremost anti-aging researcher. From the Ellis Martin Report
Article Dr. Andrews - Cure Aging or Die Trying - Article Synopsis - Dr. Andrews is the world's leading biologist in the study of telomeres. Telomeres are a sequence of non-coding DNA segments at the end of chromosomes. Research shows that these telomeres, commonly likened to the plastic tips on the end of your shoelaces, actually protect chromosomes from damage. However, each time a cell divides the telomeres are shortened.

Article from the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition - Article Synopsis - Associations between diet, lifestyle factors, and telomere length in women. -Some very interesting conclusions can be drawn from this article on Telomeres, some you might expect, others may surprise you.
Article from The Independence Science - The £400 test that tells you how long you'll live. - Article Synopsis - There is a blood test that reveals your current telomeres length and thus your expected life span. Scientists behind the test said it will be possible to tell whether a person's "biological age", as measured by the length of their telomeres, is older or younger than their actual chronological age. Medical researchers believe that telomere testing will become widespread within the next five or 10 years.
