Researchers at Stanford have developed what they call an “aging clock” that can better predict death and disease than can your chronological age. In a study published in the journal Nature Aging, they used certain blood proteins that play a role in chronic inflammation, along with an artificial intelligence tool, to identify at-risk individuals early. They calculated what they called an “iAge”. Adults with an older iAge showed systemic inflammation sooner and proved to be prone to multiple long-term health problems including lowered immunity, cardiovascular disease, and frailty. This is further evidence that inflammation plays a key role in your long-term health and life.
