DNA damage and age. a PCA group involving body comet (green squares) (r = .246, p = 0.027), and PCA group related to Tail length (red circles) (r = .313, p = 0.004), displayed positive significant correlation with age. b DNA damage was higher in older adults. Two PCA groups (comet, p = 0.034 and tail, p = 0.041), exhibited higher significant rates of DNA fragmentation in older adults (orange bars) group when compared with young adults (blue bars). Adults (age middle group, green bars) did not show any significant differences with the rest of the groups
