It seems like we've been in cold and flu season for months already with no sign of it moving on.

Why is it that the older you get the quicker your birthday seems to come around? It's mine next week and I'm already wondering where the last year could possibly have gone. It's easy to see the external signs of aging and we are constantly bombarded with products promising to reverse all of those; this article focuses instead on what's inside - your brain, lungs, DNA, heart and bones - it describes what happens to them as we age, and then tells us what we can do to rewind the clock and stay 35 forever. In my case I think 35 might be a bit optimistic - if I can stay feeling like I'm on the right side of 50 I'll be very happy!
