    It also could be the Hollywood bullshit someone else mentioned about having older actors portray younger people.

    Sugar, processed foods and lack of exercise will age you even without other vices. Some Americans also have a bizarre and unhealthy relationship to sleep, like being sleep deprived is a badge of honor. Stupid.

    I'd say it's the Chinese. You never see a 30 year old Chinese person. It's either young in their 20s or suddenly they are like 50.
    makes you question the legitimacy of all the oldest chinese people in the world. they probably aren't 110, just horribly aged 70 year olds

    ok haven't read this whole thread, and i ain't no scientist, but i have my speculations.

    so obviously, there are many factors. you said you weren''t talking about skin and stuff, but overall i think we expose ourselves to more shit. from ambient toxins to those we consume, americans are pretty saturated in chemicals. some of those in our food are pumped full of steroids that make us kinda hyper-nourished. people develop faster. and then culturally, we're in a really image heavy consumer market. we dress up, dress sexier, more professional, whatever we want to convey. i really do think that can amplify how 'old' or mature or whatever someone looks.

    basically everything is just to the maxxx in america.

And its not about stuff like bad skin or anything like that.
    I can also see the same thing on some black people(somalis for example usually look young tho, i mean the variations between black people from different parts of africa are pretty much as big as differences on white people from different parts), especially in middle eastern people and some southern europeans.
    Asians and some europeans(mostly northern) tend to look much younger than the average.

    Had anyone else noticed this?
    White people age more quickly because we have less melanin in our skin. I also think that American men look more feminine on average than White men here.

    Everything @five sounds just said, and add to that that men in America have become cogs in a machine.
