    Scientists said that deaths from there is no such thing as old age

    What is it mean?

    From a medical point of view, “to die of old age” is not the actual cause of death. In fact, under this phrase lies: he died due to complications caused by old age. All human bodies age, albeit at different rates. Despite this, age can significantly affect how our bodies react to injuries and diseases that can lead to death.

    How do we age?

    According to the Mayo Clinic, with age our body changes in many ways. Bone and muscle density decreases, blood vessels and arteries become stiff, vision and hearing become less acute, and skin becomes thinner.

    This is because cells in certain tissues either regenerate more slowly or not regenerate at all. For example, our skin loses elasticity because cell regeneration slows down with age. Brain cells can live for a long time, but do not regenerate after they die. This can lead to cognitive decline.

    However, a healthy diet and regular exercise can help slow down aging.

    How does age affect health?

    What age is considered old? There are multiple sources with multiple answers. So, for example, according to WHO, older people are people over 60 years old, according to the UN – over 65. WHO divides old age into three stages: 60-75 years old – old age, early old age; 75-90 years old – advanced age, late old age; over 90 years old – old age, longevity.

    However, as the researchers emphasize, there is no exact age for quantifying old age, as many people between the ages of 60 and 70 are in excellent health.

    Old age is not the main cause of death, the cause consists of many factors, that lead to death. However, as we age and our body stops regenerating cells or we become less active, our ability to stay healthy diminishes.

    For example, prolonged arthritis or osteoporosis can make it difficult to exercise, resulting in loss of bone density and increased fatigue. Less active older people may develop stiffer blood vessels and arteries, which means the heart has to work harder to move blood throughout the body. This can eventually lead to heart failure.

    Older people are also more likely to die from pneumonia and the flu because their bodies aren't strong enough to fight the disease. As we age, our immune system produces fewer B and T cells to help fight infection.
