Aging is the evolutionary programmed process of physiological decline in function. It is a genetic trait just like hair color. Although it is not a universal trait, as there are Species which do not appear to age at all, it is quite widespread among most Species.The molecular mechanism and its root cause remains an Enigma.
Aging is not merely an uncontrolled, random process, but rather than highly regulated as Development, opening it up to possible manipulation.
