Meaning of AGEING in English



growing old

the ageing process = the physical changes which take place in a person as he grows older

COMMENT: changes take place in almost every part of the body as the person ages. Bones become more brittle, skin is less elastic. The most important changes affect the blood vessels which are less elastic, making thrombosis more likely. This also reduces the supply of blood to the brain, which in turn reduces the mental faculties
