People with moles age slower

11th July 2007

People with many moles age at a slower rate than usual, according to a study carried out by scientists at King’s College in London.

But while researchers also found that the same people could have less chance of developing conditions such as heart disease and osteoporosis, they also have a higher risk of contracting malignant melanoma. The study involved more than 1,800 twins and found a strong correlation between high numbers of moles and a biological marker for slow ageing.
