Your mistake in reasoning here, is that it is quite clear now that there
are many independent causes of aging. Furthermore, most of the things
that we currently now call causes (such as plasma glucose glycation
products) are derivatives more fundamentally caused by something else.
It is highly unlikely that any of the fundamental causes of aging are
"everyday ones".
