IS AGING A DISEASE?
Modern science still doesn’t know what causes aging. Why can an Aldabra Giant Tortoise live up to 255 years, a human being up to 122 years, and a mayfly up to two days? Not only is aging the number one cause of mortality in the world, it’s the common factor for a host of diseases, including
dementia, Alzheimer’s, heart disease and cancer. Some scientists around the world are beginning to shift their positions from see aging as an inevitable process, to one that can be cured, or at least dramatically slowed down. Far from being a fantasy, there are organisms in the natural world which already have negligible senescence – or the lack of
the symptoms of aging.
