Is Aging a Disease?

Scientist David Sinclair argues that “Aging is the one disease that we all get if we live long enough.” But what actually happens when we get older that allows our bodies to deteriorate? In Sinclair’s research, which has spanned over two decades, he has reverse engineered aging and found that over time key enzymes in our bodies lose their identity over time making us more susceptible to disease. A growing movement of “Geroscientists” are exploring the belief that aging can be cured, or at the very least, slowed. These “Geroscientists” believe that if we can stop the cause of our enzymes deterioration, our bodies can last much longer. IF they are successful, their research doesn’t mean that humans will live forever, but as we age we will be much healthier and able to enjoy the late part of our lives longer and with a better quality of life.
