Human aging is a biological process, no one can stop, but delay it. It is possible that one person has a physiological younger than his or her biological if one engages in healthy living life style and eating healthily by increasing the intake of good healthy food such as whole grain, fruits, vegetables, beans and legumes, etc. and reducing the consumption of harmful foods, such as saturated fat, trans fat, artificial ingredients, etc.

Definition
Human aging is a biological process; no one can stop, but delay it. Itis possible that one person has a physiological younger than his or her  biological if one engages in healthy living life style and eatinghealthily by increasing the intake of good healthy food such as wholegrain, fruits, vegetables, beans and legumes, etc. and reducing theconsumption of harmful foods, such as saturated fat, trans fat,artificial ingredients, etc.
Theories of aging
 
What cause aging? The question that has been asked throughout thehuman history, but it doesn't seem to get any answer but raises manymore unanswered question. While many theories try to answer thequestion by related aging to tear and wear of the body, others dealwith how the organs and systems in the body develop and deteriorateovertime, etc. 
1. Somatic mutation theory
In this theory, aging is due to our inherited genes that come directlyfrom our parents. Since the conception occurred, our body cellscontinue to divide and replication themselves. Since the division andreplication are a life long precess at some point, for what ever reason,if cells division and replication can process incorrectly, leading tomutation of incorrect copy of DNA. Although the cause of thisincorrect process are unknown, but researchers found that exposuresto toxins, radiation or ultraviolet light, artificial ingredients, unhealthylife style, etc. can increase the risk of cells mutation and the cellscopied incorrectly can mutate themselves, leading to accumulation of incorrect gene cells that trigger a chain reaction of an auto-catalyticnature in producing more and more fincorrect gene cell, until it finallyis brought under controlled, this processes can lead to aging. As anorganism, the immune system tries to destroy or scavenger thesemutated genes but at some points, it is over whelming, leading chronicage related diseases.2. Error catastrophe theoryThe error catastrophe of aging, originally proposed by Leslie Orgel in1963. Our body immune system helps to maintain the structuralintegrity of DNA not only for cell survival but also for the transfer of correct genetic information to the daughter cells. Error catastropheindicated that alterations DNA and the incorrect placement of aminoacids in protein synthesis could result in a progressive degradationaging as a result of these abnormal protein are no longer functioningas chemical passengers or signalers.
3. Protein glycosylation
Protein glycosylation is a result of chemical reaction of glucose withvary proteins, including enzyme, elastin and collagen in the blood.The cross linked protein glycosylation leads to cell to cell adhesion
 
causing stiffness and rigidity of individual cells, reducing the cellsfunction in taking nutrients and expelling waste.If the cross link protein glycosylation occurs in the elastin andcollagen, it will cause brittle skin, causing aging, but it happens in theorgans it will be more serious and sometimes life threatening.
4. The neuroendocrine theory
First proposed by Professor Vladimir Dilman and Ward Dean MD,this theory postulates on wear and tear of the neuroendocrine system.In neuroendocrine system, the master pituitary gland secrets hormonesto direct other glands in secreting their hormones and worksconjunction with the hypothalamus glands form a command post inthe nervous system in closely direct the function of most of the bodyfunctions. but as we age, the hypothalamus loses its ability as a hormoneregulator as its receptors of which uptake other gland hormones become less sensitive to them, including sex hormones, DHEA,serotonin, melatonin, etc.As for cortisol, a hormone secreted by the adrenal glands due to stress,is produced with abundance as we age.
5. Immune system decline theory
As we age, our immune system is weakening that cause us becomevulnerable to the dangerous pathogens, including microbial and viralinvasion. Within the immune system, the thymus glands which playan important role in helping formation of the immune systemscavenger that reduces the function of immune system further thatallow irregular cell growth cause of aging spot, tumors, cancer,infection, inflammation and onset of chronic illness.
6. Genetic programming theory
Genetic programming theory propose that aging is programmed as thecells cycle in our body are also genetic program since their inception.the explanation is that all the cells are undergoing certain time indivision over the a said amount of time before dying, leading toconclusion that people with the long live genetic program live longer than others who do not.The theory also emphasizes the genetic diseases as a result of genetic programming diminished life span, regardless external and internalinfluence.
