Aging Depends on Your Nationality, According to a New Study

Forget about the official age on your birth certificate. Scientists analyzed health changes that we traditionally associate with aging and found that they can differ dramatically from our passport age. And the most fascinating finding is that it varies for different countries. In other words, some nations age really quickly, while others seem to be well-preserved.

This study is more important than just feeding the hunger of curiosity. Because if real aging comes before the retirement age, we will have people who still have to work, but will really struggle simply because they feel older and have already started getting a whole bouquet of age-related health issues.

We at Bright Side like to keep an eye on recent research and can’t wait to share this with our readers.
