Skin moles link to delayed ageing
"When you have a patient with lots of moles, we noticed they tended to age better”

Plentiful skin moles may keep you younger on the inside, say scientists.
Researchers at Kings College London found that they not only could mean younger skin, but better bone density as well.
They said that the cells of people with many moles had properties which allowed them to renew themselves more often.
However, there may be a price to pay - more moles have been linked to a higher rate of cancer, both skin and other types.
