Thank you!
"The researchers used MRI scans to assess the physical brain health of 331 healthy adults, aged 19 to 79. Those who could climb more flights of stairs and those with higher levels of education had "younger" brains, the researchers found."

Maybe I am looking at this a bit too closely but, isn't that logical that adults who can climb more flights of stairs have 'younger brains' if the group consisted of people between 19 and 79? I mean the younger ones probably could climb more stairs? And they ARE younger so their brain is younger too?!
I mean this would have been interesting if it had been a group of people over 75 or so.

I think the journalist just didn't think enough about his choice of words but it leaves me confused!
