Fountain of Youth

I received an email from one of my clients regarding a recent article in the USA Today.

Fountain of Youth

Experts on aging, concerned about the 77 million Baby Boomers and the rapidly growing older population, say more people need to adopt a commitment to physical activity. More than 62% of adults do not meet the exercise guidelines set by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

People who exercise are more likely to avoid age-related diseases and remain independent longer than those who do not exercise.

"Exercise is the closest thing we have to a fountain of youth," says Marie Bernard, deputy director of the National Institute of Aging.

It's never too late.
