Getting older is inevitable for many of us (consider what the wag said about the alternative). Biologically, the ageing process makes sense, as one set of genes is replaced by another set, those of the next younger generation. Physicians and scientists used to consider ageing and some of its more devastating consequences a subject not worthy of study – just care for the old, hence the birth of gerontology. Many many diseases are more common in the old than in the young. Today, however, there has been a major sea-change in how ageing is viewed: it has been studied extensively and some of the mechanisms, genetic and environmental have been dissected out. Our lifespan in the USA has gone up – but is not as high as other countries, suggesting environmental and population based challenges. And without necessarily trying to extend life-span, we are beginning to understand what makes for healthy ageing: activity, purpose, diet, family and good medical care. There are some on the edges of the scientific/medical community who are not only trying to make for healthy ageing but actually trying to extend our life span. And they are on the verge, perhaps, of getting results. For many older individuals, this is a very exciting area. Please see the essay below for a fuller explanation of the biologic bases of ageing as now understood, what possible behaviors will help extend life and websites which will connect the reader to information sources. However, for the majority of us, ageing remains a process to be accepted and managed. Another essay below will discuss the mechanisms of healthy ageing without necessarily trying to extend life span. Again websites will be available. Please remember, that Citidexli.com cannot be responsible for external website content. Stay tuned to this subject as it is an exciting area of life skill management, science and medicine. phd, 6/6/2006
