fighting the aging process: “quick fixes” and misconceptions

So what’s all the fuss about aging?

For thousands of years, people have looked for ways to maintain their youthful looks and vitality as they age. In search of the fountain of youth, people often rely on artificial means to alleviate the signs and symptoms of aging. Hair implants and colouring, breast implant, facelifts, make-up, Viagra, penile implants and heart operations are only a few of the methods used for this purpose. These methods are temporary fixes that may alleviate or mask some of the symptoms of aging – but these do not reverse aging itself.
