Your boobs have their own biological clock, and it's ticking faster than you think...

Scientists have discovered why breasts sag and wrinkle faster than the other parts of a woman's body. Boobs apparently have their own biological clock, which is speeding up their ageing process.

Bloody brilliant.

Researchers from UCLA were monitoring how quickly different body parts aged and they discovered that most parts of the body age in line with people's birthdays - however boobs have a mind of their own and are speeding ahead.

By their predictions, healthy boobs are ageing two or three years ahead of the rest of the body. If a woman has breast cancer, the healthy breast tissue that sits near the tumor is an average of 12 years older.

Findings published in the journal, Genome Biology this week show that this could be one of the reasons breast cancer is the most common cancer for women.

'To fight ageing, we first need an objective way of measuring it,' Steve Horvath, a professor of human genetics at UCLA explained. 'Pinpointing a set of biomarkers that keeps time throughout the body has been a four-year challenge.'

'In principle, the discovery proves that scientists can rewind the body's biological clock and restore it to zero,' he added.

We'd like to go back about five years if that's alright? What year would you go back to? Let us know or tweet us @handbagcom
