Why Do Healthy People Die Young?
Bonnie and Steve: 65 scientists in seven countries recently recorded age-related changes to human DNA, calculated biological age, and estimated a person's lifespan. According to the results, published September 28th in the journal Aging, a higher biological age, regardless of chronological age, consistently predicted an earlier death.

Chronological age refers to the actual time a human has been alive, while biological age refers to how old that human seems.

Researchers analyzed the DNA in blood samples collected from more than 13,000 people in the United States and Europe.

Applying a variety of molecular methods, including an epigenetic clock, the scientists measured the aging rates of each individual. The clock calculates the aging of blood and other tissues by tracking methylation, a natural process that chemically alters DNA over time. By comparing chronological age to the blood's biological age, the scientists used the clock to predict each person's life expectancy.

They discovered that 5 percent of the population ages at a faster biological rate, resulting in a shorter life expectancy. Accelerated aging increased these adults' risk of death by 50 percent at any age.

For example, two 60-year-old men, Peter and Joe, both smoke to deal with high stress. Peter's epigenetic aging rate ranks in the top 5 percent, while Joe's aging rate is average. The likelihood of Peter dying within the next 10 years is 75 percent compared to 60 percent for Joe.

The finding may explain why some individuals die young, even when they follow a nutritious diet, exercise regularly, drink in moderation and don't smoke.

The study validates the use of DNA methylation function as a biomarker for biological age.

Pure Genomics
For those of you who have already participated in our Pure Genomics screening, you know how important methylation is. Specifically, how important it is to know the genetic deficiencies within your methylation cycle and apply therapies to harmonize your epigenetic messages.

This study is proof positive that no matter how healthy your lifestyle is, if you leave impaired methylation unattended, biological aging may accelerate.

We have found that Pure Genomics helps our clients immeasurably:
  • Reaffirmation for why you should continue to adhere to your optimal diet and lifestyle. Genes are the deepest layer of individualization. When you are doing incredibly well despite numerous genetic deficiencies, it provides a strong deterrent for falling off the wagon.
  • Creates the last thrust of motivation for someone who is having trouble adhering to his or her diet and lifestyle protocol.
  • Connects the dots for family disease history so that preventive planning can be implemented for future generations.
  • Wonderful addition for new clients, especially to make sure they get nutrients they can absorb.
  • Research now shows that evaluating the methylation cycle may mitigate the effects of biological aging. What more can you ask for?
