Why do we age?
In nature every living organism grows old and start showing visible signs as time goes by. As we age, those signs become wrinkles, loose skin, extra weight etc. In 2013 the Journal of Cell assembled a group of scientists from various fields in order to study and review every article published on the matter and produce a paper that would shed light to this quintessential question. Their conclusions were published as “The Hallmarks of Aging” The paper describe all the chemical and biological changes that our body undergo as we age.
Since the space in our blog is limited, we encourage you to follow the link to find out how processes such as inefficient cell communication, malfunctions in the body energy machine, imbalanced metabolism, stem cell exhaustion and DNA damage work towards giving our bodies those unwanted but inevitable signs of aging. The paper accurately describe those processes and the chemistry behind each one of them, but fails to explain the links between them. The truth is scientist are yet to understand the connections that make them work together in order to turn our once flexible and energy filled bodies into our older selves. First we need to truly understand the science behind aging and the triggers that start the different aging processes at cellular level, then we will be able to create and produce treatments that may stop, or even reverse, the appearance of aging signs in our bodies.
The good news is you do not need to wait a decade or two until the scientists wrap their minds around aging.
