Longevity Tip

Regardless of whether you are otherwise healthy or have cardiovascular risk factors, being more fit means you’re more likely to live longer than someone who is less fit,” Seamus P. Whelton, M.D., an assistant professor of medicine at Johns Hopkins and the study’s lead author, said in a media release. This finding emphasizes the importance of being fit even when you’re older. . . . the researchers found higher fitness was associated with significantly increased rates of survival. The most-fit individuals were more than twice as likely as the least fit to be alive 10 years after the tests.
