While it is true that cell age is genetically controlled, disease or illness is most often the result of poor diet, lifestyle, and environment, not to mention stress! Research in longevity has shown that there are three main causes of premature aging:
• Enzyme depletion from poor diet and inadequate enzyme

• Lowered immune response, which sets the stage for disease
• Cell and tissue damage from free radicals

Aging is the process by which the body matures and grows old or shows signs of growing old that continues throughout the span of life. It is caused by a breakdown in the replacement process of cells that are continually dying.
