CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - How old is old? If you could, would you go back to being 25 years old again? What's your greatest appearance concern as you age?

Those are just some of the questions asked in a national study done by Parade Magazine and Cleveland Clinic trying to gauge America's attitude about aging. The answers say a lot, mostly reflecting a positive attitude about climbing up in years. Dr. Michael Roizen, chief wellness officer for Cleveland Clinic  says the main objective of the study is to help people stay their healthiest as they get older.

"This survey shows that most Americans say they are getting happier as they age, and now we want to make sure they have the tools and knowledge to be healthier as well," Dr. Roizen said. "Staying young encompasses so many aspects of life, from exercise to eating to avoiding toxins, to mental health, and you have more control over how you age than many think."

The details of the study will be in this weekend's issue of Parade magazine, but click here for a preview.
