Genetic traits that influence longevity exist, and can certainly be passed from parents to children. But as a general phenotype, longevity is very complex. All the genes related to longevity will not necessarily pass to the children in a predictable way.
Cellular ageing has been shown to lead to age related pathologies.
Data collected by the UK biobank genetics, enhances our understanding of genes and how they affect health.
A new study shows that different populations may have different gene variants, determining their telomere length. Something that is crucial to health and longevity.
Nuts, as called by almost everyone are not always just nuts. Some like the peanut are legumes and others like the chufa nut which is a tuber. They contain a lot of antioxidants and have a lot of nutrients. Not only that but they pack all those nutrients in a small size that lasts a long time and can be eaten raw anytime. This makes nuts a very healthy snack.
