"Some people's hearts stay strong well into their 60s, but their kidneys
begin to fail. Others may have the kidneys of a 30-year-old but fall victim
to constant infection."

"Now, scientists may be one step closer to understanding why the aging
process varies so drastically between people."

"Even within a single person, aging unfolds at different rates in different
tissues, sometimes striking the liver before the heart or kidney, for
example. People fall into distinct categories depending on which of their
biological systems ages fastest, and someday, doctors could use this
information to recommend specific lifestyle changes and design personalized
medical treatments, according to a new study, published Jan. 13 in the
journal *Nature Medicine*
