Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) pictures of the forearms of four human subjects belonging respectively to each of four generations of the same family were taken, and aging-associated changes in the humerus, epithelium, fat tissue, muscle and blood observed. It was found that together with morphological changes the proton density and the spin-lattice relaxation time (T1) of biowater in each tissue underwent chronological aging-induced changes. An aging mechanism associated with the function of biowater is deduced from the present result and from related experimental findings previously reported.
