A form of discrimination and prejudice against elders or the aging process is called as Ageism. This has also become a very real concern in today’s world. There are some cultures such as the Abkhazians and Vilcambabans which respect longevity. And also according to the modern-day culture, looking youthful is essential to be considered beautiful and for success to be achieved. Because those people spent huge money on attempts to reverse the aging process with methods like botox, plastic surgery, and expensive creams and ‘potions.’
