Life used to be a continuous trek from youth to old age, but recent developments have changed the way people look at it. While there are still some people who grow old quickly, others have found that taking care of their bodies can make it easier to live longer. Health and aging are two factors people now look at as they go through life, and many of them are making better choices to help them live longer.
Remaining healthy does not necessarily slow the normal age progression of people, but they can live better lives when they stay in shape and eat well. For those who have genetic dispositions for health issues, there can be ways to keep problems at bay. Even those who find their family history has left them in good shape as far as aging can find ways to remain healthy longer as more knowledge becomes available to them.
