GREYING POPULATION STAYS IN THE PINK

Post by jp2012 on Sun Jun 30, 2013 10:26 am

Elderly people are growing healthier, happier and more independent. The results of a 14 year study to be announced later this months reveals that the diseases associated with old age are afflicting fewer and fewer people and when they do strike it is much later in life. In the last 14 years the national long term health care survey has collected the data on the health as well as the life styles of more than 20,000 men and women over the age of 65. Researchers now analysing the result of the gathered data in 1994. The high blood pressure and the circulation problem are the major medical complaints in this age group are troubling a smaller proportion every year. And the data confirms that the rate at which these diseases are declining continues to accelerate. The other disease of the old age are dementia, stroke, arteriosclerosis and emphysema troubling fewer and fewer people. Certain diseases are beating a retreat in the face of medical advances but there may be other contributing factors improvements in early childwood nutrition in the first quarter of the twentieth century for example todays elderly people starts a better life now a days then their predecessors. But the independence can have draw backs. Seeman found that elderly people who left emotionally isolated maintained the higher levels of stress harmones even when asleep. The research suggest that the older people fare best when they feel independent but know they can get help when they need it.
