Theories of Aging

Theories of aging may be divided into classes: those that answer the query “Why do we age?” then that is an evolutionary theory of aging and those that deal with the question “How do we age?” then it is a physiologic theory of aging. These theories compete with each other, making it not likely that multiple of them could be true. Over time, a few theories have fallen out of favour as others have turn out to be more extensively accepted. Other theories, more properly referred to as hypotheses, are smaller in scope and address the question, “How will we age?” They try to provide an explanation for the mechanisms that affect how we and other species age, and it is possible that a number of them are concurrently true. Checking out these hypotheses is the current pursuit of most aging ¬research. Identification of the mechanisms that affect aging ought to cause interventions that slow or modify aging. Current research means that there may be a limited number of these mechanisms, giving scientists hope that their efforts may additionally one-day cause strategies that would assist us to lead longer, healthier lives.
