Why is there such a difference in the rate at which people age? Scientists have discovered that it all starts inside our cells.

For most of us, aging means loss of muscle strength, bone density, lung capacity, and memory, and our risk for conditions such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease, dementia, and cancer all increase. When you graph the incidence of disease versus age, you notice something rather striking: Many chronic disease conditions are rare when we are young, but their incidence begins to increase around age 50. To scientists who study aging, this upsurge around age 50 suggests that there might be a common reason underlying the onset of some of the age-related diseases, and that may be cellular aging.

When we are born, we start out with a large population of healthy cells; then, ultraviolet radiation, environmental toxins, stress, and poor diet do damage to our cells. The more our cells are exposed, the more damage accumulates. It is this accumulated damage that eventually crosses a threshold that may lead to recognizable disease.
