Health problems are common among the elderly, and the challenge is usually whether to attribute the problems to genetics, aging, or environmental factors such as nutrition and lifestyle. It is possible to slow the aging process within genetic limits by adopting healthy lifestyle habits and engaging in physical activities. Did you know that 70-80% of the average person’s life expectancy may depend on individual health related behaviour, with genes determining only the remaining 20 to 30%? Good nutrition helps maintain a healthy body and therefore ease the aging process. It also improves the quality of life in later years.
