Hope everyone’s had a great weekend and a moderately decent Monday. Today’s topic is of universal precedence, and often lurks in the minds of many. Some may be concerned by premature lines, whilst others are preoccupied with diminished energy or poor memory.
Ageing has indeed become an adjective. The common man often believes ageing is inevitable and that it is part and parcel of fate. But has anyone ever wondered, what are the intricacies that has transpired within the body – eliciting this controlled and premeditated event called ageing.
There are two main groups of aging theories. The first group states that aging is natural and programmed into the body, while the second group of aging theories say that aging is a result of damage which is accumulated over time. In the end, aging is a complex interaction of genetics, chemistry, physiology and behavior.
Studies have demonstrated that genetics can play a major role in aging. When researchers adjust the genes in certain mice, yeast cells and other organisms, they can almost double the lifespan of these creatures. The meaning of these experiments for people is not known, but researchers think that genetics account for up to 35 percent of the variation in aging among people.
As we age, our body’s organs and other systems make changes. These changes alter our susceptibility to various diseases. Researchers are just beginning to understand the processes that cause changes over time in our body systems. Understanding these processes is important because many of the effects of aging are first noticed in our body systems. Here is a brief overview of how some body systems age:
