Chapter 13 Early Adulthood Early adulthood extends from 20 to 40 years old. Physically they reach their peak. People in there 20’s tend to be healthy, vigorous and energetic. Their senses are sharp. Seeing and hearing is at its peak. The senses will remain good until they begin to deteriorate in the late 40’s and 50”s. Health Adults in their 20’s and 30’s stand a higher risk of dying from accidents than from disease. But at around age 35 illness and disease overtakes accidents as the leading cause of death. Men are more apt to die than women, usually due to car wrecks. African Americans have twice the death rate of Caucasians. Men are more apt to dye from violent acts. The most frequent cause of death for young African Americans is homicide. In some areas of the country, a young black male has a higher probability of being murdered than a soldier in the Vietnam War had of being killed. He has a 1 – 21 chance of being murdered during his lifetime compared to white males who have a 1 in 131 chance of being murdered.
