In 10 seconds? We can slow down ageing by adopting lifestyle changes – at least this is what the results of a randomised controlled trial suggest. The research adds to the study of epigenetic changes that affect our bodily metabolism.

What, can we become forever young? Not so fast - although this is what ex-Amazon chief Jeff Bezos wants to achieve by investing heavily into an "age-reversal startup". The finding comes from a small scale trial – independent of Bezos - that involved 43 healthy males between 50-72 years old. Part of the participants was given a treatment programme. As a result, their biological age appeared to reverse by 3.23 years.
