Join us this Sunday morning as our host Dr. Kevin Passero and his special guest Dr. William Andrews discuss the anti-aging potential of telomere biology.
William H. Andrews, Ph.D., has worked in the biotech industry for 30 years, focusing the last 18 years on finding ways to extend human lifespan through work with lengthening telomeres, which are genetic structures found at the ends of our chromosomes. Short telomeres have been associated with the aging process, and preserving or lengthening telomeres is thought to be one way we might reach for “the fountain of youth.” Dr. Andrews is presently the founder, President and CEO of Sierra Sciences, a biotech company focused exclusively on developing pharmaceuticals that will induce the production of telomerase (the enzyme that re-lengthens telomeres) in all our cells.
Tune in this Sunday from 10-11am on 1500 AM (WFED) or listen live on the web. Our shows are streamed everywhere.

I normally choose not to read newspapers, but I’m at a conference and a copy of USA Today was left outside my door. This article really caught my attention: “Is This the Anti-Aging Secret?” The article was talking about how exercise may be the closest thing we have to the fountain of youth. While it does the obvious (helps us lose weight, shape and tone our bodies) it’s also incredibly effective in reducing the incidence of chronic illness, can help alleviate symptoms of depression by flooding our systems with “feel good hormones,” improves our quality of life, level of independence as we age, quality of sleep, self image, confidence, gives us energy, vitality and so much more.
So here’s my question…
What’s stopping you from starting an exercise program?
Let’s get these excuses out of the way:
1. I’m too busy
2. I’m too lazy
3. I have no place to work out
4. I’m too tired
5. I’m too fat
6. I don’t know what to do
7. You don’t understand my lifestyle – there’s no place to fit it in
8. I hate to exercise
9. I don’t want to get hurt
10. I don’t get results so what’s the point
