It’s a question we all have and Ted Educator Monica Menesini explains it so well. Our average age as humans is set at 90 years old and yet we have some people that celebrate triple-digit birthdays. So what does this all mean for us humans? What factors counteract the body’s effort to stay alive and healthy? What does aging really mean?
