Though aging is a lifelong process, many persons think of their aging only late in their lives. By this time many have in fact accelerated their aging or developed diseases that may otherwise never have occurred. This article focuses on measures that, if followed throughout one's lifetime, may improve functional status during one's later years. Environmental factors and diet are a few of the areas discussed.
