The term old age, when do you think it begins? If you had to pick an age, what would it be? Or do you believe that age is but a number. Surprisingly, according to research said, “old age” starts earlier than most would think.
Scientists say old age begins at 27 as mental powers start to decline. In fact, researchers have found that peoples’ mental abilities peak at 22 before beginning to deteriorate just five years later. The researchers say the results suggest that therapies designed to prevent or reverse age-related conditions may need to start earlier, long before people become retired.
