Richard Hughson's head shot with a heart.How does an unhealthy lifestyle accelerate aging? Waterloo’s kinesiology professor Richard Hughson is working with astronauts to help answer this question. Long-duration spaceflights cause stiffening in the arteries that is typically seen in over 20 years of aging. Learn more about what cardiovascular aging and the development of insulin resistance in space are teaching us about chronic disease on earth.
