Stress & Aging

To roll back the clock on your appearance, start with your lifestyle.

Researchers confirm severe emotional stress speeds up the aging process in some people. That stress includes anything in life like a divorce, loss of job, or family illness in the family.

Scientists at the University of California in San Francisco have discovered blood cells from women who spent years taking care of a disabled child were found to be, genetically, at least a decade older than those in women who were not caregivers.

The study suggests being under extreme emotional stress tends to weaken the immune system.

Stress can also break down the body's tissues and other organs more quickly than normal.
