Seniors Extend Life With Exercise

According to Swedish researchers, seniors aged 65 years and older can actually extend their life expectancy by exercising. Those who participated in hour-long walks or occasional physical activity were 28 percent less likely to die from any cause compared with those who admitted had practically no exercise at all. Those who were more active (fast walks, jogging or cycling about once a week) were 40 percent less likely to die.
