The Daily Digest: Age is Just A Number

At what age do you feel 65? For Japan, it’s 76. But for Papua New Guinea, 46-year-olds are already experiencing the health problems that an average 65-year-old would. We look at a new study on ageing - not just in terms of chronological years, but in health status.
