The Key to Active Aging

From the moment of birth until death, the process of aging marches on at a steady pace. Although genes provide clues to our susceptibility to health problems and approximate mortality, the greatest predictor in whether we succumb to or avoid disease is how we choose to live our lives. The common phrase “aging is fact of life” should not be misinterpreted to mean “don’t bother fighting it because we’re all going to die someday.” Although true, what’s paramount is the inherent quality of our daily lives. Are we consciously engaging in behaviors that augment well-being or conversely, are the days spent suffering from aches and pains, immobility, depression and malaise? Positive health behaviors can have an overarching protective effect on our capacity for resilience to the normal stressors of life and buffer against environmental influences of disease. In the absence of vigilance, we can easily fall victim to their enormous powers.

The Issues Are in Our Tissues
Researchers Blackburn and Epel’s work on telomeres, the tips on the end of our chromosomes made of protein, reveal important information about how lifestyle behaviors combat the aging process. Telomere length is indicative of a cell’s functional ability to do its job, which in specific tissues like the heart, gut, lungs, etc., is to replicate and divide. Each time a telomere replicates, it gets shorter, thus providing insight to the age of the cell relative to the age of the person. In short, tangible cellular evidence exists to demonstrate how lifestyle choices can influence our genetic predisposition.
