Live Well, Die Old(er)0

Apparently, being physically fit may lead to a healthier and longer life.  According to a recent study published in the British Medical Journal, individuals who are able to perform simple tasks such as gripping, walking, rising from a chair or even balancing on one leg may actually live longer.

According to the study:  “Objective measures of physical capability are predictors of all cause mortality in older community dwelling populations. Such measures may therefore provide useful tools for identifying older people at higher risk of death.”  Perhaps this study will revolutionize exercise in the future.
