BACKGROUND Leukocyte telomere length has been taken as a measure of biological age but several inconsistencies exist. METHODS We investigated associations between leukocyte telomere length in old age, midlife risk factors, and mortality. The Helsinki Businessmen Study (a cohort of mainly business executives, born 1919-1934) had baseline assessments of cardiovascular risk factors including body mass index between 1964 and 1973 at a mean age of 40. Leukocyte telomere length and proportion of… CONTINUE READING
