I read from an article before that the human body starts dying at the age of 25. It doesn’t technically mean that it dies, but it starts to age. The article said this is so because the cells in our body could no longer repair themselves thus they age and eventually die. The production of the newly formed cells decreases. The amount of dying cells or aging cells increases while the production of new cells decreases. Therefore the human body will start to age and feels tired easily. So if you reach the age of 25, you should not abuse your body like the way you do when you were younger, healthier and stronger.
Since I am already 30 years old, then it’s already 5 years since my body cells started dying thus it also means that I have been abusing my “dying” body for 5 years also. And I think, just maybe, that is the reason why I easily get sick and experiences pain in my whole body.
If the article says is true or not, I think I should not abuse my body but sometimes I have no choice but to do some extreme activities just to earn money for the family. 🙁
Anyway, as we grow older, don’t think about your body starts dying when you reach the age of 25 but you can consider this…
