The company—which also sells supplements they claim slow aging—is now offering a test that examines your DNA to tell you how old your “epigenome” says you are. But is it correct? And what are you supposed to with that information?


“My driver’s license says I’m [so] many years old, that’s how many trips around the sun I’ve taken,” says Elysium Health CEO Eric Marcotulli. But, he wonders aloud, “is that an accurate representation of how my body is performing at any given moment?”

Do you rofl, bahaha, or lolol?


These days, the internet is filled with meaningless “LOLs” and “LMAOs,” shorthand that indicates that something is funny, even when, truthfully, there’s usually no laughter behind the screen.
