US scientists Tony Kalasanti and Neil King analyzed 96 websites that advertise anti-aging methods. The analysis showed that advertising of products for rejuvenation is aimed at representatives of the Caucasian (white) race, fairly wealthy people who are fond of prestigious and expensive hobbies (travel, certain sports) and have a heterosexual orientation. Researchers believe that aging men are associated with declining testosterone levels and are portrayed as something of a disease, a "modern male epidemic" that must be confronted. A characteristic feature of advertising is the opposition of men and women, in which the "real" man appears to be dominant, strong, active, sexual, and the woman is only the object of his desire.

Men who are mesmerized by advertising should be warned - natural age laws are not only related to the loss of masculinity discussed in advertising. There are other psychological and physiological consequences of aging, the timely acceptance of which is necessary for a healthy old age.


American scientists Joanne Montepare and Margie Luckman from Boston University studied whether there is a discrepancy between actual and psychological age.

So, adolescents ascribe to themselves a greater age compared to what they actually have. In contrast, middle-aged and older people tend to have the opposite tendency - to feel younger than their age. Moreover, the older people get, the more noticeable this discrepancy becomes and more applies to women than to men. Scientists have suggested that adults who underestimate their age are more satisfied with life at the moment, but at the same time are afraid of the approach of old age.


The easiest and most effective way to rejuvenate the body is walking. Japanese scientists led by Yushikazu Yonei conducted a study in which 2 groups of 15 people took part. The average age of the participants is 59 years. All participants were asked to take 45-minute walks for 8 weeks, 5 days a week. To monitor the heartbeat, one group was asked to use a special device that signals deviations. Another group needed to regulate the load, focusing on their own feelings. Before and after the experiment, various physiological indicators and characteristics of the quality of life were measured. The results showed that in the volunteers of the first group, due to training, systolic blood pressure significantly decreased. They also have less pronounced lethargy, apathy, ringing in the ears, constipation, joint pain,insomnia, pessimism. Such an effect was not observed in the second group … The authors concluded that training turns out to be more effective if the required intensity of loads is constantly monitored, using special equipment as a strict “trainer”.


A group of English psychologists led by Sarah Arber asked the patients of the clinic, aged 65 to 93, whether they were ready, if necessary, to support their lives with the help of such means as artificial ventilation, restoration of heart activity and respiration. It turned out that women were twice as likely as men to speak out against the use of such technologies. Women are afraid of becoming a burden to others, while men express a desire to live as long as possible and are not particularly concerned about the consequences of this for others. It is noteworthy that elderly married ladies are ready to apply similar technologies to their husbands and take care of their spouses in the future. Men, on the other hand, rightly assumed that their wives would be against the use of such technologies.

The study showed that such a different attitude to this issue is explained primarily by the fact that women are more concerned about their own health and the health of their loved ones.
