Turns Out Twins Really Do Outlive The Rest Of Us

Having a twin means you’ve got a built-in buddy at school, a loyal partner in challenging times and a forever sidekick for hilarious hijinks.

But there’s one benefit to twin-hood that’s especially awesome: A longer life.

Twins live longer on average than the rest of the population, according to a study published by researchers at the University of Washington. Their conclusion provides even more evidence that maintaining strong social connections can extend your lifespan, while proving that twins among us have a greater shot at living long, healthy lives.

For the study, researchers reviewed data on 2,932 pairs of same-sex Danish twins that were born between 1870 and 1900 and stayed in Denmark, eliminating any pairs with an individual who didn’t live past age 10. They then compared them to the Danish population at large. 

They found that no matter their gender, both fraternal and identical twins have lower mortality rates than the rest of us. The most notable gap for women comes in their early 60s, when twins have a 10 percent advantage over the rest of the population.

Male identical twins have it especially good in their mid-40s: When men reach that age, there’s a six percent mortality advantage for male identical twins compared to non-twin males. In other words, according to the university, if 84 of 100 non-twin males are still alive at age 45, then 90 of their twin counterparts are still alive.

Twins of both genders, but especially males, have each other to thank for protection from risky behaviors. Having a twin means “you’ve got someone watching out for you,” James Anderson, a co-author of the study, told The Huffington Post. He says it’s likely that twins “tend to be more careful, and you might relate that to the fact that you have somebody close you can communicate with.”

But twins aren’t the only ones who benefit from close relationships. Scientists have long recognized that married couples tend to live longer than single people. And keeping a tight-knit network of friends or extended family is shown to boost longevity, too, thanks to feel-good hormones, stress relief and a sense of belonging.

So even if you aren’t a twin, you can still earn an advantage.

“It all relates to having a support system,” Anderson says. “Whatever that system is, it has beneficial effects to your longevity.”

To make sure that their conclusions aren’t specific to one generation of Danish twins, the researchers hope to replicate the study in non-19th century folks.

Stars With Gray Hair Prove Getting Older Isn’t All That Bad

In time, every guy gets gray hair. It’s a non-negotiable aspect of getting older, really, like wrinkles and a tendency towards dad jokes. (Unless, of course, you’re one of those genetically gifted guys, blessed with heads of hair that seem to retain color well into the twilight years of their lives. But, if you’re reading this, we’re going to venture to guess and say that’s not the case.) Now, when that happens, you’re going to feel inclined to dye that gray hair back to its original hue—or, at least as close to it as you can get with a box of Just For Men.

Dwayne Johnson And His Daughter Will Make Your Heart Melt

The Rock is #dadgoals.

We’re finding new reasons to fall in love with Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson on the daily, but this one really takes the cake. 

In an Aug. 23 Instagram post, the new dad posted a video of himself playing with his daughter, Jasmine, who uses the top of Johnson’s head as a drum while music plays in the background.

“Finally, my big head is used for more than just a place to hang my hat,” he wrote in his caption. “The joys of being home w/ my ohana and playin’ one of our fav games — slap daddy’s head ‘til I can see his big scary face.”

The soundtrack to their game is also special, explained Johnson, who is half-Polynesian. The song “O Tiare” is a Samoan one that he has been singing to his daughter since she was a week old.

“When Jasmine learns to talk, I’m sure she’ll ask me to please stop singing,” Johnson wrote, in true dad fashion. “I must now go do something very manly and badass to counterbalance this post.”

We’re not crying ― you’re crying.

Rangers Waive Josh Hamilton In Order To Try Again Next Spring

Josh Hamilton, with all of one minor-league at-bat in 2016, has been placed on unconditional release waivers by the Texas Rangers. No one is going to claim him; he hasn’t hit well or been healthy in a couple of years, and he’s still owed about $28 million this season and next. But this may not be the end of one of the more turbulent careers in baseball history—just by releasing him, the Rangers are signaling their future plans for him.
