Moles May Age Better !
It turns out that Marilyn Monroe and Cindy Crawford's moles may be worth more than their aesthetic value alone: a study presented in November shows that people with moles age slower and can appear up to seven years younger than their peers.
A study conducted by researchers at Kings College London that was first published in the Cancer Epidemiology Biomarkers & Prevention Journal was presented last month to a group of doctors and scientists at the UK's Royal Society of Medicine Conference.
Scientists found that an abundance of beauty marks is correlated with stronger bones, firmer muscles, a healthier heart and eyes, fewer wrinkles, and even a nearly 50 percent reduction in the risk of osteoporosis. Scientists say the link stems from the fact that people with moles have longer telomeres -- the region of DNA found at the end of every chromosome that serves as a plastic cap to keep chromosomes from unraveling and mutating.
As humans age, their telomeres naturally shrink. Shortened telomeres are responsible for causing all types of conditions associated with aging including wrinkles, hair thinning, arthritis, weight gain and loss, high blood pressure, diabetes, vision and hearing loss.
But in spite of these results, preserving your telomere length has to do with more than just possessing beauty marks. Other factors such as a poor diet, smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, obesity and psychological stress can also cause your telomeres to shorten faster than natural cell division alone. Meanwhile, exercising has been linked to longer telomeres.
So, do u have a mole ? :)
fathimah, i'm thinking to have the mole remove..i'm afraid that it might cause cancer or something serious..anyway, if you know anyone, please pm me...thanks..
I don't know of anyone particular in Doha but my sister had a similar prob in SL so I know you need to see a skin specialist. I have been to some at Hamad but not for the same reason as yours. Inshallah if the skin specialist feels its nothing for concern alls well. But if,God forbid, she has any concerns she will then likely refer you to another doctor who specializes in this department. And may require a minor surgery.
Fathimah..thanks alot.. May your God Allah bless you a hundredfold..do u know any doctor or hospital that specialize on mole related problem?
So i am Lucky.....
Yes you better do that pronto. Inshallah it may very well be harmless by why take a risk,na?
Moles or not I'll stick to a good diet and healthy way of life in order to preserve youthfulness!
