Growing older is not an illness, but the passing years do make the body more vulnerable to disease. Our genes dictate that the body's cells stop dividing after they have divided twenty or thirty times. New cells must be made to replace those that die, a process that slows with age. In addition, cells are subject to premature death and damage. When there are no longer enough new cells to replace the ones that have died or suffered damage, the result is aging.
Free Radical Damage is a major cause of aging. Free radicals are atoms or groups of atoms that are extremely unstable and highly reactive. If they are present in excessive amounts, they begin attacking the body on the cellular level. Free radicals attack the cells' protective membranes and genetic material, causing cellular damage and malfunction. To make matters worse, the immune system may then attack the damaged cells as if they were foreign invaders.
