How can the period of youth be prolonged? A doctor answers
The question that arises here is what is aging, and if it cannot be avoided, are there ways to help delay it?
In response to these questions, Paulina Loseva, a biologist and author of the book “Counterclockwise, what is aging and how to deal with it”, answered these and other questions in an interview with Radio “Miak”
At the beginning of her speech, she said that if we measure aging by internal molecular changes (such as mutations in DNA), we will see that a person begins to age from the moment he is born, because cells begin to divide and change after that.
According to scientists, old age- a disease that can be avoided. It is normal but not necessary.
She continued, noting that the list of diseases related to age is specific, and it can be recognized and the body’s readiness for infection and prevention can be understood. And it turns out that with exercise and proper nutrition, it is possible to delay aging as a disease and prolong youth.
But the magic medicine to prevent aging has not yet been invented by scientists. Therefore, man can only maintain the condition of his equally aging body. However, scientists do not lose hope in discovering or creating this drug, as they have important information about it. According to them, this drug should be taken on a permanent basis in order to delay aging.
