According to a new study, you can pretty much blame how you look like when you're older on your mom. The new study reveals that the decay of your mitochondrial DNA isn't all your fault. Check it out:
For the first time, the researchers have shown that the aging process is influenced not only by the accumulation of mitochondrial DNA damage during a person's lifetime, but also by the inherited DNA from their mothers.

"Surprisingly, we also show that our mother's mitochondrial DNA seems to influence our own aging," said Larsson. "If we inherit mDNA with mutations from our mother, we age more quickly."
So well, let's hope you didn't inherit any. Can you tell who the mother and daughter is in the picture above?
