"...is the aging of whole organisms. Aging is generally characterized by the declining ability to respond to stress, increasing homeostatic imbalance and increased risk of aging-associated diseases." Aging-associated diseases might include rheumatology, dermatology, cardiovascular disease, cancer, arthritis, osteoporosis, hypertension, Alzheimer’s disease…general organ failures etc… A long time ago this old guy, after he and his friends had told me all about the gory details about their ailments which involved breaks, leaks, diapers, surgeries, and all kinds of whatnot finally succeeded in grossing me out and then said, “Yep, growing old ain’t for sissies!”… lol Anyway, I’m wondering are you considering possibly making some lifestyle changes now to improve the quality of your later life, or are you just taking the “wait and see” and will deal with it when and if it comes approach? If considering it now, what do you suspect might affect you? What precautionary measures might you explore? Do you take any preventative measures now to avoid or lessen the chances of these certain ailments or make up for things you suspect might affect you later in life due to neglect, abuse, genetics or whatever?
