We have two contributing factors to how we age:
- Intrinsic Ageing, which is known as chronological ageing - the inevitable, genetically determined process that naturally occurs to all of us. It is out of our hands and it counts for 50% of how we age.
- Extrinsic Ageing, which counts for the other 50% and is the part of ageing that goes above and beyond genetics. It involves lifestyle, environment, stress, diet, pollution, and lack of sleep. Good news is, these are all factors that we can control.
