Scientists may have uncovered the key to slowing down the ageing process

Scientists believe they may have uncovered the secret to slowing the ageing process, thanks to the discovery of a previously unknown piece of genetic code.

From trying to prevent wrinkles to attempting to keep our bodies healthy as we age, the search to put the brakes on the speed at which we age is ongoing.
But researchers believe they have made a key discovery in the strive to live a longer, healthier life.
A team of scientists, from the University of Edinburgh and the Max Planck Institute for Biology of Ageing in Germany, have uncovered a link between high iron levels in the blood and the ageing process.
Using genetic data from more than one million people researchers attempted to discover why some people age at different rates.
