Types of aging

Aging can be categorized into two types and due to two types of factors, intrinsic and extrinsic.

  • Intrinsic aging is a genetically predetermined process that occurs naturally.
  • Extrinsic aging is a result of outside factors chosen by you, such as where you live, your stress levels, and your lifestyle habits (like smoking).

Programmed theories of aging

  • Programmed aging theories say that our cells have a predetermined lifespan that’s encoded into our bodies. These include:
  • Gene theory - suggests that specific genes turn “on” and “off” over time, causing aging.
  • Endocrine theory - here, aging is caused by changes in hormones.
  • Immunological theory - this is the idea that the immune response is designed to decline(autoimmunity), leading to disease and aging.

Error theories of aging

  • Wear and tear theory - cells break down and become damaged over time.
  • Genome instability theory -aging happens because the body loses its ability to repair DNA damage.
  • Cross-linkage theory - aging is due to the buildup of cross-linked proteins, which damages cells and slows biological functions.
  • Rate-of-living theory - an organism’s rate of metabolism determines its lifespan.
  • Free radical theory - aging is due to the buildup of oxidative stress, caused by free radicals.
  • Mitochondrial theory - mitochondrial damage releases free radicals and causes aging.
