both diet and obesity levels can be altered to slow these changes down
Ft. Lauderdale, FL (PRWEB) December 19, 2012
Naturecast Products issues an update to their aging report, as diet and obesity have recently been proven to be important factors of aging on a molecular level.
New research conducted at Newcastle University and published in the journal, Aging Cell indicates that diet can actually affect molecular changes associated with aging.
The researchers used subjects that had no cancer or inflammatory bowel disease and ate their usual diets. The team then searched for epigenetic modifications (molecular changes) to genes that are associated with the earliest signs of bowel cancer which is an age related condition.
The researchers then examined the relationship between these changes in genes and other factors like age, sex, body size and the levels of some nutrients in the subjects' blood.
While the largest factor was concluded to be aging, they also found that selenium and vitamin D levels reduced the accumulation of molecular changes. Additionally, they found that high blood folate and obesity increased them.
The researchers concluded that while aging is a very large factor in molecular changes, that both diet and obesity levels can be altered to slow these changes down.
