BACKGROUND Previous research demonstrates that physical activity participation is associated with longer leukocyte telomere length, with shorter leukocyte telomere length being a hallmark characteristic of cellular aging. What remains under-investigated, however, is whether there is a mode-specific association of physical activity on leukocyte telomere length, which was this study's purpose. METHODS Data from the 1999-2002 National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey were used (N=6474… CONTINUE READING
