When you hear the word “old age”, the first thing that probably comes to mind – the grandmother on a bench near the entrance, and old men playing dominoes. But old age can be quite different.
Speaking of the “people of retirement age,” the first thing that comes to mind – grandmother near the entrance, and old men playing dominoes in the park. But old age can be quite different. The selection purposely did not mention “stars” such as Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sylvester Stallone, Hulk Hogan and others. For many like to blame Hollywood actors, preserving good shape to old age, that they sit exclusively on plastic surgery, hormones, etc. Therefore, only athletes and ordinary people. If you ever wanted real-world proof that age is nothing but a number, you’ve found it. So there you go.
