What happens when you age?
When it comes to aging, certain questions may arise, such as: Why do our bodies age, and how old can people get? But growing older is about more than just how many years you have lived.
Our bodies are complex organisms with countless features and functions. It is normal for damage or mistakes to occur in our cells and tissue over time. These changes aren't a problem in our younger years: Our bodies can simply repair many of them, or have enough reserves to make up for them. But the ability to deal with this damage decreases as we grow older. So it starts adding up, leading to signs of aging.
