As we age, damage accumulates in our bodies due to everyday exposures that will ultimately result in cell death. Over time, these factors will naturally predispose us to cancer and other diseases. There are several factors that influence the aging process of the human body. Lifestyle choices and habits play a large role in determining how the aging process will go. Important factors and habits that influence the aging process in our bodies include hydration, sleep, mental state, environmental toxins, and exercise. Improving any or all of these factors in your everyday life can significantly improve the way your body ages.
