How old? - Clapped out!
It would be an interesting exercise to test a cohort of PWME to see if we have 'early senescence'.
Probably more likely that this will be used to crank up your insurance premiums.
It would also be interesting to test a cohort of PWME, then test them again when they had improved. I wonder if they would get 'younger'.
I look younger and feel younger than when I was at my worsed but does that mean my cells behave younger?
Is there a difference between feeling old and feeling crap??
English is not my first language. Is crap something of extremely poor quality?
Several of my costumers were medical trained and some still practicing. They saw I was ill and one later (when I was improving ) said: I thought you were terminal.
My health was of poor quality but I think poor health not necessarily means feeling old.
Yes it is. Although crap means a few things. I was going to say feel like shit which may have made more sense??? lol.
According to the authors, lifestyle didn't affect ageing at all, which is hard to swallow. I wonder if this could be due to lack of variance in the data, i.e. participants had a very similar lifestyle?
Yep, and to decide who "deserves" treatment. People not aging well according to this test may conceivably be denied certain treatment because they don't represent a good cost/benefit ratio accordign to long-term prognosis.
I got to agree with this. I'm potty trained but I still spend most of my life on my back. I guess I must have the genetics of a cute toddler
Here's an easy way to test this. Go grocery shopping. Observe the age of the old ladies zooming past you. Your biological age is older than that!
Mine appears to be about 90 :-(
Trouble is I am fast approaching the actual age of those old ladies @caledonia though my mum is 93 and I am still faster than her thankfully!
