People suffering with schizophrenia have a 20% lifespan reduction compared to general population and almost all age-related illnesses are overrepresented among them. There are several contributing factors, including deleterious antipsychotic medication side effects, unhealthy lifestyle and social deprivation, among others. Taking a different approach, we explored the hypothesis that people suffering with schizophrenia have an actual “aged” body, independent of the previous factors.
