Question description

The Changing Face of Aging

It used to be that population resembled a pyramid, with the greatest numbers of people being very young and the smallest numbers being very old. Now; however, we see more of a rectangle as older adults, especially centenarians, become one of the fastest growing segments of the overall population. One of the more interesting discoveries about centenarians is that they tend to be in good health (Boston University School of Medicine, n.d.).

After reviewing one of the centenarian studies and the readings from the text for this unit, explain why centenarian studies are important to understanding aging.
