A recently published study from Northwestern University reports that when your biological (epigenetic) age is older than your chronological age, you are at a greater risk of getting cancer and dying from cancer. As the gap between the two becomes bigger, so does your chance of dying from cancer. The statistics are shocking–for each one-year discrepancy between chronological and epigenetic age, there is a 6% increased risk of getting cancer within 3 years and a 17% increased risk of dying from cancer within 5 years. Having only a 6 month difference between epigenetic and chronological age puts you at a higher risk of developing cancer! Doctors are using this new information as a way to detect the early warning signs of cancer.
Epigenetic age can be modified by a person’s environment, including environmental toxins, obesity, exercise, and diet. This is exactly why I wrote the Fit Fun & Fabulous At Any Age Biological rejuvenation program. This program reverses the biomarkers of aging which define your Epigenetic/biological age. Then we follow the program to get you back to your chronological age or younger. I personally will be 60 next year but my biological age is 33.
The book is full of people’s stories who have reduced their epigenetic age along with the benefits of doing so. Normalizing blood pressure, blood sugar, A1C numbers, cholesterol and other heart disease indicators along with the added benefit of fat/weight loss.
