Life Expectancy Calculator Click Here: Life Expectancy Calculator This tool is designed to help you understand how certain behaviours like smoking, alcohol, food, exercise and stress level can affect life expectancy.
The calculator doesn’t guarantee accuracy and can’t account for people with pre-existing medical conditions. But, in general, it reveals how behaviour, such as the amount of exercise you get, can affect life expectancy.
Seniors who fit in the most daily physical activity – from raking leaves to dancing – can have more gray matter in important brain regions, researchers reported on Monday.
The scientists have images that show people who were the most active had 5 percent more gray matter than people who were the least active. Having more little gray brain cells translates into a lower risk of Alzheimer’s disease, other studies have shown.
“People really want to know what they can do to reduce their risk of Alzheimer’s disease,” said Dr. Cyrus Raji of the University of California in Los Angeles, who presented his team’s findings to a meeting of the Radiological Society of North America.
“I really do believe that we have strong evidence that physical activity can be a way to reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s disease,” Raji said.
As I was lying in bed pondering the problems of the world, I rapidly realized - It's the tortoise life for me!
1. If walking/cycling is good for your health, the postman would be immortal. 2. A whale swims all day, only eats fish, drinks water, and is fat. 3. A rabbit runs and hops and only lives 15 years. 4. A tortoise doesn't run and does nothing, yet it lives for 450 years.
And you tell me to exercise?? I don't think so.I'm retired. Go around me!
