Summary: Telomere length was measured in 28 people and food intake, based on questionnaires was assessed. Higher red meat intake was correlated with increased telomere length.

Key Takeaways

Telomeres are specific segments of DNA at the end of your chromosomes, and they typically shorten with time and a shorter length correlates with aging. This study found that out of 28, those with the highest red meat intake had the longest telomeres.
