Healthful plant-based diet associates with greater well-being in older adults

A shift towards a more plant-based diet is promoted as healthy as well as sustainable. Whether this also applies to older adults is however less clear: On one hand plant-based diets may lead to energy deficits among vulnerable older adults and therefore negatively impact well-being. On the other hand, plant-based diets have been found to have anti-inflammatory properties, suggesting they could be beneficial to older adults, often prone to chronic inflammation. We just published [...]

Scientific meeting: Modifying Cardio-vascular Ageing: from old cells to elderly patients

Cardiovascular diseases are the major cause of death in the industrial nations especially in the elderly. Therefore, it is of scientific interest which part of the complete risk for cardiovascular diseases is based on cellular ageing in comparison with normal risk factors like smoking or hypercholesterolemia.   Thus, it is important to understand the molecular and cellular mechanisms of ageing. With this knowledge, interventions can be developed to modify the aging process and thereby [...]

A word of caution on the regression to the mean phenomenon in (biological) age prediction

When predicting ‘biological age’, always consider whether regression to the mean could be an issue before drawing conclusions. Marije Sluiskes, Jelle Goeman, Marian Beekman, Eline Slagboom, Hein Putter and Mar Rodríguez-Girondo posted a PubPeer comment (a postpublication peer review platform) to a recent publication of Daunay et al. 2022 (Aging) which didn't consider this. Daunay et al. evaluate and compare four previously proposed epigenetic clocks based on a small number of CpG sites in [...]
