How Stress is Speeding Up the Ageing Process of Your Chromosomes

Have you ever heard that myth where being so stressed can actually turn you gray? While there’s no scientific evidence to back that up, there is a way that stress can affect how fast you age (and get those gray hairs). Ageing is a process we can’t escape, as much as some of us would like that. New research shows that stress (which you could probably say is also inescapable) is one of the factors that influences ageing. From a DNA perspective it affects the tiny little chromosomes that make up our bodies.
