For Older Men, Short Telomeres Can Be A Sign Of Chronic Stress, University College London Study
3/12/2014 7:09:53 AM
Andrew Steptoe of University College London and his colleagues have found that telomere length can predict how long it takes older men to recover from stressful situations. Men with shorter telomeres have longer recovery times than men with longer telomeres. This could mean that men with shorter telomeres suffer from chronic stress. The research appears in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.
