What is biological age and cumulative rate of aging?

Your cumulative rate of aging and your biological age are personalized measures of your health and wellness. They are calculated by looking at DNA methylation, which is an epigenetic mechanism that affects your gene expression. Your biological age and cumulative rate of aging change throughout life and can be impacted by genetic, lifestyle, environmental, and temporal factors.
