Maybe that's why some elderly are so cantankerous? Would explain the "get off my lawn" codger and the old biddy who kept my baseballs and frisbees just cuz they flew over the fence.

This is one of the reasons HGH (human Growth hormone) is incredible.

HGH has been scientifically shown to be the factor hearts, thymus glad, and all other organs shrink with age. Replaceing HGH levels to that of 30 years old, NOT ABUSING just replaceing will prevent this. many people are 80 and look and function as if they are 40 because of HGH replacement.

Arthritis is being fought with HGH, Google "HGH and joint replacement" and see the reseach you come up with. People have prvented going through Joint replacement because of hgh injections.

The future is here and FINALLY people will begin to understand how the body ages and how we can drastically STOP immobilization that comes with age.... Google "Bodybuilders over 50 years old" and see what they know and what typical americans are learning.

It should be very interesting to let the experts explain the
significance of this finding of the reduced heartsize after
the age of 50. And what does this mean. Is it of importance
to prevent this shrinking
