"Take control of your DNA"

Ever wondered how long you are going to live? Of course you have - we all have.

Well now, thanks to some breakthrough science, the power to longevity is in our own hands.

Chronomics is a personal epigenetics and biotechnology company based in London that has created a pioneering saliva testing kit to collect your epigenetic data.

Epigenetics is the study of biological mechanisms that switch genes on and off. It controls your DNA and is affected by environmental and lifestyle changes, in a nutshell, our genetics is fixed, epigenetics is dynamic.

So by altering these genes and cells, one can, in theory, live longer.

CEO and co-founder of the company, Dr Tom Stubbs explains how this science works in providing a "specific guideline to your epigenetics so that people focus on the strongest lever to improve their health".

It extracts 20 times the amount of data compared to other DNA tests.

We know there are thousands of factors that can impact a person's lifespan, but this piece of kit is definitely a proactive step for healthcare.

After all, prevention is better than cure.
