We’re all getting older, but some of us age faster than others.
It doesn’t have to be this way.
To clarify, general health and vigor decreases with age but everyone experiences this decline differently: some are more vulnerable to stressors and thus age faster.
Graduate student Kevin Boreskie views aging in terms of frailty, and used a simple, three-part plot: not frail, pre-frail, and frail. Pre-frailty is what policy-makers and doctors should home in on—it’s where exercise-based interventions can curb health decline and even restore health before the onset of chronic illnesses.
