Charles Eugster discusses the ageing population and how we have changed our demographic and created one of “degeneration and disease”. He explains that natural healthy ageing is hard to find and how we have started to believe that disease is a natural part of ageing.
Life long work, continuous education, strenuous sports. Eugster explains this could be our reality. Yet, inactivity is a major cause of death. He suggests that we consume excess food as if we are still in survival, our instincts tell us to consume excess food and escape activity as much as possible – our innate is destroying us.
Eugster explains that there are 3 factors that contribute to successful ageing: work, diet and exercise and explains that we must look at retirement as a new beginning.
