2007: The long and the short of it | The Economist
"since it is unlikely (though not impossible) that Amish men are genetically different from others, it also suggests that men's shorter telomeres in the outside world are a result of the way they conduct their lives, rather than an inevitable property of being male.

the age at which men and women became parents also influenced their offspring's average telomere length: the older the parents, the longer the offspring's telomeres.

There is, frankly, no good explanation for these results at the moment"
