Brain Image
Cardiologists, epidemiologists, and other researchers publishing in Aging have discovered that epigenetic aging and brain scans can be combined to accurately predict cognitive decline. Two entirely different measurements The ongoing CARDIA study was started in 1985 to monitor coronary artery risk development in young adults (who are no longer young). This large cohort has been...
Rainbow Clocks
In a preprint published in bioRxiv, Morgan Levine and colleagues have identified and grouped 5,717 epigenetic CpG sites into 12 different modules, conducting an in-depth examination into how epigenetic clocks work. Epigenetic Clocks - What are they?An epigenetic clock is a biochemical test that uses DNA methylation levels and accumulation of methyl groups on DNA...
Work Stress
A study published in Aging that studied the Northern Finland Birth Cohort of 1966 has found some interesting and counterintuitive results regarding work stress and accelerated epigenetic aging. Work stress is widely associated with premature death It is common folk wisdom that too much stress leads to a shorter lifespan, and this belief has been...
Food DNA
A study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition examined the relationship between diet quality and epigenetic aging clocks [1]. This study used data from the Framingham Heart Study Offspring Cohort. This specific study noted the Dietary Approaches to Stop Hypertension (DASH) scores, which are derived from a food frequency questionnaire (FFQ), of 1,995...
Hearing Loss
A study published in Frontiers in Aging Neuroscience examined the relationship between epigenetic age acceleration and hearing [1]. Since 1958, a team of researchers from the National Institute on Aging Intramural Research program has been conducting the Baltimore Longitudinal Study of Aging (BLSA). The BLSA study continuously enrolls volunteers free of chronic conditions from a...
Exercise
Scientists have used DNA methylation markers to measure the anti-aging effects of healthy diet and physical activity, reaching interesting, if at times contradictory, results [1]. Move, eat healthy, check your biological age Physical activity (PA) and healthy diet are two powerful interventions that have time and again shown their potential to slow aging. Their importance...
