We do our best…
Age is just a number. In my opinion those who believe this are doomed to pay a price. Medicare began 55 years ago because our systems age. Any glance at 85 year old skin will confirm that. It is the largest organ in the human body.
Yes exercise and diet are important but they are cushions not cures. Nonetheless I am a firm believer in both. It’s all we really have against the onslaught of the clock on our brains, hearts, kidneys, etc., etc.
May you be the beneficiary of a high quality of life in your anecdotage.
