Aging as a Disease? Really?

There is a terrific story in MIT's magazine this month.

Language counts for a lot and a researcher is ok with naming aging as a "disease." In fact, the World Health Organization came close to naming aging a disease.

One researcher suggests aging is a cause for disease, not a disease itself.

Geezer Jock will sometimes find a story like this and see if the community wants to comment on it. Please do!

There is no pay wall for this story on aging from MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology).

I never thought of aging as a disease but maybe I should. A disease is something bad but aging is not in my opinion.
