The cells of the immune system act more slowly. These cells identify and destroy foreign substances such as bacteria, other infecting microbes, and probably cancer cells. This immune slowdown partly explains several findings associated with aging:
Cancer is more common among older people.
Vaccines become less protective in older people.
Some infections, such as pneumonia and influenza, are more common among older people and result in death more often.
Allergy symptoms may become less severe.
As the immune system slows down, autoimmune disorders become less common.
After this review of the negative effects of aging on our health situation, it is important to get solutions. These solutions are Age Control related and not Anti-Aging. The main reason why to emphasis on this is the illusionary effect that anti-aging promoters had during the last 30+ years. Most have created the illusion that it is possible to stop or even rewind the aging process. But even the apparent truth is known by all, many still did follow the belief of immortality.
Most anti-aging campaigns are brought from a pure commercial point of view. Even views which are still potentially harmful such as the differently available hormone therapies. These commercial therapies have a proven long-term negative effect on body and soul, let alone morality. Anti-aging seemed to be a commercially oriented movement which uses pseudo-science without a holistic view, we do need in the aging science.
How is it possible to enhance a positive aging process? The facts are not as complicated as they may seem but some of this advises are straight ahead spoilers of a lazy, lay-back and irregular lifestyle. Aging is a natural process which only can be followed by natural “treatments” which “delay” the negative parts of the aging process.
