Think about a time where a person’s age has genuinely surprised you. This can go both ways: the 50-year old who looks more like 35, or the 60-year old who you would have sworn was at least 80. What makes the difference?
There’s a genetic influence, of course, and we can’t do anything about our genetic make-up, but we can influence the expression of our genes.
Sitting around every weekend eating chips and drinking beer is going to have a different effect than being active and eating healthy foods. Gene expression is influenced by lifestyle choices and environmental factors, so making the best choices will give the best results.
So, what lifestyle choices can you make?
Getting older is going to happen, but we can make choices that allow it to happen gracefully and healthily.
