    Hello Maria, Thank you very much for your efforts and sharing this information. Finally someone who thinks about aging and death! I would hope that Science will one day be able to prevent death.

      Death is totally inevitable Jale cos we all are going to die which is definite. However,all science can do is to extend life not but not prevent death.

    Curing aging (well, death) is incredible complex (of course:)).
    This level of complexity should be attractive in it’s own right, an unresistable challenge for the planets brightest minds, even if some of them pretend to accept death.
    Attracting the powerful ones might help our case in regards of resources.
    But most politicians in power are bound by some kind of average mindset when it comes to visions. Some are really contraproductiv and so on. You know that…
    That’s no reason to give up!

    cheers from Sweden

  6. Dear Maria

    To further this project, I have since drafted a proposal for WHO and contacted Dr. Elizabeth Blackburn and some 40-50 others. Please review the proposal and support the project.

    Help with Lobbying to World Health Organization (WHO) on my Proposal of World Telomere Day
    Subject: Contacting World Health Organization (WHO) to work on my Proposal of World Telomere Day

    Dear Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus Director-General of the World Health Organization (WHO).
    I wish o present to him my view to world saving concept of World Telomere Day about which I am in communication with Dr. Elizabeth Blackburn and Dr. Elissa Eppel authors of The Telomere Effect: A Revolutionary Approach to Living Younger, Healthier, Longer given that Telomere is a marker of health and longevity and public awareness on Telomere would act as a powerful tool to curb the diabetes and other NCD pandemics that are now out of control WHO has very wisely picked 14 November as the World Diabetes day. The link of sleep and Telomere is pertinent because World Health Organization listed night-shift work as a carcinogen in 2007. I wish to have 14 February recognized by WHO as the World Telomere Day . My draft proposal to WHO and Dr. Blackburn that I am working on furiously is online here. Short link to distribute is http://WWW.BIT.LY/TELOBURN

    Kindly demonstrate the requires compassion for the world health and support me.


    Dr. Pradeep Kumar Verma MBBS (Neurology)
