Can we delay ageing?

Every cell in our body will age. With wrinkles and age spots, the skin is the first human organ to show signs of ageing. It would be wrong to suggest that we have found a way to beat ageing. The truth is we have not but studies on animals models such as the mouse above are providing insights into the biology of ageing. Some time in the future we may have treatments to delay the ageing process. In the meantime, we do know enough about the ageing process, to formulate strategies that target processes implicated in the ageing process.

Two popular theories on ageing can form the basis of our age defying strategy:

  • The free radical or anti-oxidant theory
  • The hormonal theory
