The Disturbing Link Between Psychiatric Illness and Accelerated Aging

Posted by in category: life extension

The results of this study demonstrate a clear relationship between psychopathology and rate of aging. Remarkably, this relationship was obvious by the age of 45. By that time, those with the upper 10% of psychopathology factor (p-factor) scores had aged approximately 5.3 more years than those with the lowest 10% of p-factor scores.

Is a history of psychiatric illness associated with more rapid aging?
