They said, n the new study, scientists led by Aladdin Shadyab, a post-doctoral fellow in family medicine and public health at the University of California San Diego, traced sitting’s impact on the chromosomes.
For the research the scientists have looked at nearly 1,500 women aged between 64 and 95. It found the cells of women who sit for over 10 hours and do less than 40 minutes of moderate-to-vigorous exercise a day have are biologically eight years older than women who are less sedentary. The women with biologically older cells had shorter telomeres which are found at the end of DNA strands and help to protect chromosomes from deterioration.
“Our study found cells age faster with a sedentary lifestyle. Chronological age doesn’t always match biological age,” said Dr Aladdin Shadyab, lead author, at the department of family medicine and public health at the university’s school of medicine.
“We found that women who sat longer did not have shorter telomere length if they exercised for at least 30 minutes a day, the national recommended guideline,” he added.
The women who took part in the study are part of the Women’s Health Initiative, a national study investigating the determinants of chronic diseases in postmenopausal women.
Dr Shadyab said future studies will examine the effects of exercise on telomeres will focus on men and younger populations.
