If 27 is Old, How Old is 82?
A new research shows that old age begins at 27… if this is true, Mr. L.K Advani who was born on (8th Nov. 1927) is already 82 now. 3 times older than a 27 year old, would we want him to become the next PM? No wonder Mr. Advani had to spend Rs. 250 crore to show that he is still game for politics.
Believe it or not, old age begins at 27, say researchers. A new study has revealed that many well-known effects of ageing may start decades before the twilight years when old age is often blamed for causing many people to misplace keys, forget a word or lose the train of thought.
In fact, according to the researchers, people’s mental abilities begin to decline from the age of 27 after reaching a peak at 22.
“Results converge on a conclusion that some aspects of age-related cognitive decline begin in healthy, educated adults when they are in their 20s and 30s,” the Daily Mail quoted lead researcher Prof Timothy Salthouse as saying.
They studied 2,000 men and women aged 18 to 60 over seven years to reach the conclusion.
