Fit elderly 'can boost longevity'
« on: February 12, 2008, 11:28:56 PM »
It is never too late to reap the benefits of a healthy, active lifestyle, research has concluded.
Scientists found 70-year-olds who take regular exercise, eat well, and do not smoke greatly increase their chance of living until 90.

The researchers estimate that longevity is only at most 30% down to our genes - the rest is down to lifestyle factors.

The study, by Boston's Brigham and Women's Hospital, appears in Archives of Internal Medicine.
