Aging is a life-long process. Unfortunately, many persons do not think of their aging until they have diseases that otherwise may never have developed or have advanced their ‘years’ beyond what their genetics had predestined. Although we cannot change our gene pool, the most important factor in how well we will age, we can control other environmental factors capable of accelerating our aging process and even causing disease.
