Ageing and longevity

Ageing is the accumulation of changes that occur in the body as we get older, which contributes to disease and eventually ends in death. The study of ageing is called gerontology. Life expectancy is the average number of years that an individual can expect to live. The HALE (healthy adjusted life expectancy) is often lower than life expectancy since our last years of life tend to less healthy years.
