Mechanisms of Aging

Aging is the process of becoming older. Aging processes involves molecular, biochemical and biological mechanisms. In humans, aging represents the accumulation of changes encompassing physical, psychological, and social changes. For most human diseases aging is among the greatest known risk factors. The process of aging is driven at the cellular level by random molecular damage that accumulates slowly with age. Although cells mechanisms repair or remove damage, they are not fully efficient and their efficiency declines with age. No genes are known to have evolved specifically to cause damage; Aging is not a programmed process. In determining life-span the role of genetics is complex and paradoxical.
