Long term effects of exercise are great but I am still one day at a time.

The article itself mentions limitations with the study. The way I see something like this is-- might help, probably wouldn't hurt, since exercise is important for overall good health anyway.

This is a Swedish study. A huge percentage of Swedes belong to gyms and use them regularly. They also tend to eat much healthier and in much smaller portions than Americans. They also have, unlike Americans, complete access to healthcare for their entire lives. It is rare to see an overweight person in Sweden. That was the first thing I noticed after I moved here 7 years ago and it is still true.

yeah.. I saw that article. While the statistics are initially impressive (!).. I had to wonder "what else" occurred in those intervening 44 years which might affect the study results. The first thing that comes to mind... is which group tried to control their weight and eating?! My guess is the folks that were exercising were also the group that at least tried to watch their health in other ways: eating, doctor visits, etc.

It certainly doesn't take away the message that exercise is part of the picture though!!

PS...I expect if they study men, the same findings albeight smaller percentages perhaps will emerge!! Now lets both get off our computers and go exercise?!!

If this isn't incentive to workout, I don't know what it will take:
