How many of you are 60 years old and over? Please raise your hands. How many of your parents are over 60 years old? Please raise your hands. Do you know or have you heard what people over 60 years old often talk about? What I often heard is this: “My doctor placed a couple of stents in my hearts” or “My doctor told me I need seven stents in my heart, I just placed a couple and wait for a while to place more”. Then they will talk about saving money for future disease treatment. I call this aging population syndrome, which is saving money for disease. How many people involved in this aging population? According to WHO, between 2000 and 2050, the number of people aged 60 years old and over is expected to increase from 605 million to 2 billion, about 11% to 22% of the world population.
