Aging

Aging produces many changes in the human body, including physical, psychological, and social changes. Aging also affects the functions of the body parts like cells, tissues, and organs. The initial sign of aging is the presence of wrinkles, fine lines, and crow's feet in men and women. There is an uneven skin tone with visible pores on the skin. Aging is of two types - intrinsic aging and extrinsic aging. Intrinsic aging occurs naturally, and extrinsic aging occurs based on external factors. The other common signs of aging are loss of height, frequent urination, weight gain, and the appearance of senile warts.
