with Preventative Health: The New Science of Aging
Although we have been successful with each generation in extending
our life span, this new generation could be the one that does not outlive
its parents. Obesity and disease are running rampant even in our children.
Most of this poor health is due to inactivity and poor diet. Prior to the
20th century, average life expectancy was about 45 years of age. Life span
is the maximum age obtainable for the species and is defined by the oldest
living individual. To date, Madame Jeanne Calment who died at age 122 years
in August 1997 is that individual. Other centenarians in history:
* Hippocrates (460?-377?B.C.), lived for 80-90 years
* Sophocles (496-406 B.C.), Tagic poet lived 90 years
* Andrea della Robbia (1435-1525), Florentine artist, lived 90 years
* Michelangelo (1475-1564), lived to 91 years
* Tiziano Vercellio (1488-1576), lived to 88 years
* My own Grandmother Berniece Mc Mullen lived to be 97 years old
Have our genes changed that much or have our lifestyles and
Physically we reach our peak at age 11, and bodies have not
yet started to age. If we could keep this vigor and resilience, we could
live to 130 years of age or older.
At adolescence, aging begins. Ahead lie the risks of pregnancy,
stress of parenting, and a decreasing resistance to injury and disease.
From age 11, the chance of death doubles every eight years.
We have long believed that aging was a downhill journey that
progressed with time. Today there are health practitioners who have dedicated
themselves to exploring the new frontier of anti-aging. We are living in
a time of scientific discovery so revolutionary that it could change the
course of the human race. We are on the verge of prolonging life by slowing
aging and preventing the onset of disease.
Traditional medicine focuses on treating the effects of the
aging process while anti-aging medicine focuses on treating or preventing
the causes of aging.
