Is It Ever Too Late?

Monday, February 04, 2013

True or False: If you're middle-aged and have spent the past 20 years smoking, avoiding exercise, or otherwise being unhealthy, it's too late to change now.

Answer: False. Recent research shows that people who quit smoking by age 40 gained nearly 10 years of life over those who continued to puff. And a 2012 study by researchers at the Cooper Institute in Dallas concluded that people who started to exercise in middle age---even if they only walked a few times a week---were healthier further into old age than people who never started exercising.

So.............Let's get out there and start moving no matter what age we are. It is NEVER too late!!!
