  • Imagine chowing down on a pastrami  and pizza bagel sandwich, deep-fried  

  • and covered in more cheese. Mouthwateringright? But then there's this nagging thought:  

  • Could this delicious monstrosity be speeding up  my biological clock, ticking away my years? Well,  

  • thanks to a study that spills the beans on exactly  how our diet influences our biological age,  

  • we're closer to that answer. Let's digest this  info together, along with some antacid, to find  

  • out if we can outsmart our body's biological  clocks through the land of greens and genes. No,  

  • not those jeans — G-R-E-E-N-S. And you're already  eating them. Okay, all right, well here we go.

  • Hey there, welcome to Life Noggin. Recentlyan innovative study was conducted by Stanford  

  • University that explored the impact of diet  on health and age. The study followed 22 sets  

  • of genetically identical twins over 8 weekswith one twin on a vegan diet and the other  

  • on an omnivorous diet. What they found is that  those on a vegan diet experienced improvements  

  • in heart health through lower levels of LDL  cholesterol and an increase in beneficial  

  • gut bacteria. Additionally, the vegan diet  group showed a reduction in biological age,  

  • suggesting potential anti-aging  effects of plant-based eating.

  • Okay, so you're eating a bunch of veggies and  swearing off Mr. Mumu here, but how does one  

  • measure these changes in biological age or  health? Are you ready to get full on some  

  • science? Enter Methylation Risk Scores, or MRSs,  a cutting-edge approach that dives deep into our  

  • DNA. Unlike Polygenic RIS scores (PRS), which  are fixed and based on the genes we inherit,  

  • MRSs assesses the methylation patterns on our  DNA. These patterns are like biological bookmarks,  

  • indicating which genes are turned on or offand can significantly influence our health  

  • and aging process. Specifically, MRSs can be  revolutionary in the medical field. For example,  

  • by reading DNA methylation patternswe can now diagnose diseases that were  

  • previously identifiable only by clinical  observation, such as schizophrenia.

  • What's really cool is that MRSs enables us  to predict the risk of developing diseases  

  • that lack traditional predictive measures, like  Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD),  

  • which currently isn't predicted but diagnosed  when you're already sick. This leap in predictive  

  • capability highlights not just the potential  for early intervention but also the strength  

  • of our biological makeup. Unlike PRS, these  methylation patterns can change based on  

  • our lifestyle choices, environmentand notably, circling back, our diet.

  • Okay, so MRSs is a great thing, how can  we influence our MRSs for the better?  

  • Let's take some notes, people. Science  points towards several strategies, like  

  • optimizing nutrient intake, engaging in regular  physical activity, managing stress effectively,  

  • and ensuring quality sleep. Uh-oh, I'm  in danger. Each of these factors plays  

  • a pivotal role in how our genes express  themselves. They enhance our health, age,  

  • and well-being. However, the real benefits  of MRSs is that once these tools are created,  

  • we can find the specific interventions which are  most preventative. Basically, there's a lot more  

  • helpfulness to be explored, and as the science  of aging advances, there are newer, more precise  

  • methods that can determine our biological  age, such as advanced epigenetic testing,  

  • which examines the modifications in our DNAThese methods stand out not just by measuring the  

  • accumulation of age-related molecular changes, but  assessing the pace at which these changes occur.

  • And that brings us to the sponsor of today's  video. So, be honest, do you think your diet  

  • is helping or hurting your biological age? Based  on your diet, how old do you feel? Thank you to  

  • our sponsor, True Diagnostic. True Diagnostic  is an epigenetic research and testing company  

  • specializing in biological aging based on DNA  methylation. With the ability to test more than  

  • 1 million locations on your DNA, True Diagnostic  takes biological aging insights to the next  

  • level. They only use published algorithms with  documented and proven links to health outcomes. To  

  • learn more about other aging and health-related  secrets you can unlock from your epigenetics,
