The phenomenon of aging
In the past, few people reached old age, but in today world, advances in technology and health have allowed people to live longer and die at an older age, so now more people can experience aging. On the other hand, since almost all countries of the world have gone through or are going through a period of high fertility and fertility, naturally more people are reaching old age at the same time than in the past. Globally, after reducing mortality and the likelihood of children surviving into adulthood, overall fertility declined. As a result, the number of elderly people in societies has increased and now the population of some countries is aging and in other countries it is expected to experience this phenomenon in the future. It is believed that with the increase of the elderly population, the number of chronic diseases increases. Most chronic diseases - such as cancer, cardiovascular disease (CVD), Stroke, Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease, arthritis, diabetes and obesity - are becoming leading causes of disability and death all over the world. On the other hand, the concept of healthy and active aging, despite such conditions, seems difficult and requires proper planning. In general, solutions have been proposed to achieve these goals.
