"Childhood Adversity Linked with Shorter Telomeres" - Science Blog. 10/04/2016.

David Weir says the study's data source, the HRS, includes "the kind of large, diverse and nationally representative group of participants needed to detect these intriguing effects of lifetime experience on our fundamental biology.”
