Fig. 1. Epidemiological studies have consistently shown an association between increased rate of telomere shortening and accelerated aging. Shortened telomeres portend increased morbidity and mortality through cardiovascular diseases, cancers, and other major physical ailments. Patients suffering from chronic psychiatric disorders, for example schizophrenia and mood disorders have significantly decreased life spans compared to controls. Recent studies reveal that this connection may be mediated by accelerated attrition rate of telomeres. See text for full details. HPA, hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal; CV, cardiovascular.
