Important breaking science news about the space-time-Obama continuum

By way of the LA Times, the science is settled:


So much for the theory that plenty of golf and fresh air will keep you younger:

The graying of Obama has been a topic of discussion — and a favorite punch line — since his temples started to turn in 2009. But as Obama ends a year packed with turmoil, toil and political trouble, the temptation to blame the stress of a rough 2014 is strong, says the expert, S. Jay Olshansky, a public health professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago who has studied presidents and aging.

But it appears neither Russian President Vladimir Putin nor incoming Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell can claim direct responsibility for the changes that Olshansky and his wife spotted on TV. His research found no evidence that presidents show signs of accelerated aging while in office or die sooner than other men.

So the good news for Obama is that he’s not aging any faster than everybody else — the bad news is that these last few years the aging process for everybody else has greatly accelerated.
