Researchers at BMC find disability does not necessarily follow disease in living to old age
Date:2/11/2008

ing disability in the presence of important age related diseases could lead to better prognostication and perhaps even therapies, she added.

The researchers also found that though far fewer in number, male centenarians tend to have significantly better cognition and physical function than their female counterparts. One possible explanation for this may be that women are more resilient compared to men when it comes to aging. Thus, for a man to live to 100 or older, he must be in truly fantastic shape as close to the end of his life, whereas, the women can better handle living with age-related illnesses.
