Obesity and depression make men age faster, research says
AMSTERDAM: Scientists in the Netherlands and the United States have studied nearly 2,000 people between the ages of 18 and 65 and found that men with obesity and depression age faster, while those factors do not affect women much.
For the study, 2,981 volunteers from the United States and the Netherlands were recruited between 2004 and 2007, and all were monitored until 2020.
According to medical science, human aging affects not only the external but also the internal, that is, the cellular scale. This is why some people look older than their actual age while some people look younger.
