If you are maturing at a faster rate than you would like and worse still accepting as a fundamental result of aging.. then do read Madelyn Griffith-Haynie’s post. I have interviewed people in their 90s who are healthy, not on any medication and have all their marbles.. they have eaten well all their lives, still go out and engage in activity and meeting people, still have goals and dreams and look and feel twenty years younger. A great deal of this is in our own hands. Find out more about the work of Aubrey de Grey. It is not only for our own benefit that we need to take more responsibility for our health as we get older. The cost of taking care of us as we accumulate illnesses associated with old age is going to cripple the health services for the generations coming along behind us. We need to get a grip. #recommended

Before I continue with a Series of articles designed to describe and discuss EF struggles, what’s involved, and explain what you can do to mitigate the effects (before, during and after they develop)
