All living organisms have time-measuring devices that affect their development, generation time, lifespan, and lifestyle

Beyond this apparent universality of physiological time, people perceive time and the passing of time in diverse ways, as mediated by their cultures.

The value of 'long life' is thus, to a large extent, ascribed collectively, but differently in each time and place.

On a global scale, 'population aging'—the process by which older cohorts become relatively prominent in a given population—was one of the most distinctive demographic events that marked the twentieth century and will undoubtedly remain an important trend throughout this century .

Thank you for the post and keep sharing.

The main focus of ageing research is to prevent/combat age-related disease and disability, allowing everyone to live healthier lives for longer.
