According to a recent study, men age more quickly than women do.
This assertion was supported by a Finnish medical study.
According to the study, men over 50 have a biological age that is four years older on average than women.
It should be mentioned that although each person’s age is established by their chronological age, there is also a biological age (sometimes known as a biological age), which reflects the age at which physical and mental functions begin to decline.
This biological age is influenced by genes, lifestyle, and other variables; the older this age, the higher the chance of developing certain diseases.
The first study of its sort revealed that as people become older, the biological age gap between men and women widens.
In this study, hundreds of participants had their chronological age, commencing on the date of birth, compared to their biological age.
Various tests were used to evaluate DNA-related components for this goal.
According to studies from the University of Jyväskylä in Finland, men have a longer biological lifetime than women, and smoking and body weight are two factors that contribute to this.
The findings of this study also provide an explanation for why women are older on average than men.
In this study, 2240 twins’ biological ages were determined and they were split into two groups based on their Chronicle Ages.
The age range of one group was 21 to 42, while the age range of the other was 50 to 76.
The study, which involved 151 identical twin siblings, gave the researchers knowledge regarding genes and way of life.
The findings showed that men have a higher biological age than women across all age groups.
Only in adulthood does this age gap exist, and it gradually widens over time.
The researchers concluded that men and women of the same age had different biological ages, meaning that men have a greater biological age than women and that this difference is most pronounced in older persons.
“Despite sharing 50% of their DNA and having grown up in the same environment, we also noticed this disparity among twin siblings.
The results were printed in the Series A of The Journal of Gerontology.
