If you want to understand a dog's age in human years, all you have to do is multiply by 7, right?

Turns out that formula falls apart when you factor in that small dogs and big dogs have radically different life spans. 

So researchers with the University of California San Diego decided to search for a more accurate measurement and made a discovery that could change our understanding of aging.

Geneticist Tina Wang worked on the study and spoke with KCBS Radio anchor Jeffrey Schaub about what they found.
