Ive studied physiology for years.

"at age 25, people start going downhill-they decline about one percent per year on a host of measures of physiological functioning and physical performance until they hit their mid-60s. Then the hill gets steeper, and the rate of decline increases.

This one percent rule is not someone's fanciful theory. It has been borne out by numerous studies over the years."

Recent studies suggest the decline begins earlier.
