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 repetitive DNA sequences at the end of chromosomes. Shorter telomeres typically correlate with increased aging. While the evidence in this study is low in quality, it showed that people with higher red meat intake had longer telomeres, and thus less aging.
