Higher metabolic rate can make you age faster!
A new study has suggested that higher metabolic rates can predict early natural mortality, indicating that higher energy turnover may accelerate aging in humans.
To investigate whether higher metabolic rate is associated with aging in humans, this study examined whether energy expenditure, measured in a metabolic chamber over 24 hours and during rest predicts natural mortality.
The resting metabolic rate, which is how much energy a body uses simply to keep the lungs and heart working. If this rate is high, it may lead to earlier organ damage.
