Activity details

Aging is an emerging worldwide threat to public health with consequences in all sectors of the society, even in the workplace, representing a major risk factor for functional impairments, chronic diseases and mortality. Aging is an individual, natural, inexorable and biologically complex process during which a decrease in the body’s ability progressively appears to respond appropriately to internal and/or external stressors. Some individuals have a more rapid physiological senescence than others. In fact altered exposure to lifestyle and occupational agents, favoring the inflammatory responses and oxidative stress, can accelerate cell aging with a consequence of an increased risk of age-related disease including cancer. Chronological age therefore may not be a reliable indicator of the body’s rate of physiological decline. The aim of the research is to establish the real biological age of an individual in order to appraise whether: 1) prospectively incorrect lifestyle and environmental/occupational exposures accelerate the biological aging; and 2) on the other hand, practices for healthy aging including physical exercises, cognitive training, relax training, safe nutrition, weight loss ect… slows biological aging.
