The Statesman featured a study led by postdoctoral researcher Eric Klopack on how social stressors can contribute to immune systems appearing to be older.

“In this study, after statistically controlling for poor diet and low exercise, the connection between stress and accelerated immune aging wasn’t as strong,” said Klopack. “What this means is people who experience more stress tend to have poorer diet and exercise habits, partly explaining why they have more accelerated immune aging.”
