You really can be older than you look - 48 years older, actually
People age at vastly different rates. Now doctors have drilled down into the biology of how that happens
Some older people are ageing so badly that their body is 48 years older than their actual age, scientists have found.
In contrast, other so-called “super-agers” are growing old surprisingly slowly, and may be biologically still in their 20s.
Researchers at the University of Southern California looked at the rate of change occurring to the DNA of more than 4,000 over-57s and found striking differences between biological age and chronological age...
