The researchers found that over 66 percent of the respondents said that the experience had aged them with a number of people showing various signs of aging such as no sex (20 percent), short term memory loss (14 percent) and hair loss (10 percent).

Stating that prolonged stress can lead to premature aging, lead researcher Dr Glenn Wilson said, "Periods of prolonged stress and anxiety can seriously take their toll on our well-being, with depression, weight loss and premature ageing a likely outcome."
