Causes and Factors that Influence on Aging

Aging is the process of becoming older. It represents the accumulation of changes over time e.g the reaction time may slow with age but knowledge of words may exceed and wisdom may expand. Aging is the most common cause of majority of human diseases and almost 2/3 of the population suffer from it. Environment composes all the living and non living creatures which contribute to life on earth.

When ozone layer is depleted it results in emission of green house gases and Ultra rays which can cause serious skin disorders including solar erythemia and premature aging.

 Medicines and environmental exposure:

Elder people who take multiple medications are at higher risk of aging because of adverse reaction between medicine and environment, which can either inhibit or exagerate the effects of these enzymes conversely causing metabolic process more active which can lead to toxicity

Tree cutting and health:

Without trees there would be no filter to CO2 which is a harmful gas and if not converted to O2 it is really hazardous to health and can cause serious health problems

Sedentary life style:

Smoking nearly damages every organ, tar and tobacco is really harmful for health and it causes cancer
