Overview

Everyone who is 50 + who has the desire to remain healthy as they grow older should learn how to provide proper maintenance. Some of us may not feel like a senior citizen, however our bodies are growing older.

By 2030, the number of older Americans is expected to double from 35 million to 70 million. The percentage of the total population that is aged 65 or older is expected to grow from 12 percent in 2000 to 20 percent in 2030. The growing number of older adults will place increasing demands on the public health system and on medical and social services.

Lack of physical activity and poor diet are the major causes of an epidemic of obesity that is affecting the elderly as well as middle-aged and younger populations.
