Disease of Aging

The most common diseases of the elderly:

Coronary heart disease: It accounts for one third of U.S. deaths among those aged 65-74 and 44 percent of deaths in those 85 and older.

Cancer: People over 65 are 10 times more likely to develop cancer than those under 65, thanks to a weakened immune system and longer exposures to cancer causing toxins.

Alzheimer's Disease (AD): The older the person, the greater the chance of getting it. AD patients live two to 20 years; the average is only eight years.

Strokes: After age 50, the rate of strokes doubles with each 10 years of age. The major risk factor is high blood pressure.

Arthritis: Primarily a disease of older people, there is no known cure.

Osteoporosis (bone loss that leads to fractures, loss in height, and "dowager's hump"): It affects nearly one in four women over age 60 and almost half of women over age 75.

A healthy lifestyle can prevent many of these diseases. Once they develop, there is no cure. Many older people take lifelong medication to alleviate symptoms. Animals sometimes take the same medications.
