Science getting caught up to what most of us already know:

http://www.physorg.com/news105888851.html (WFS)

From the article: "... it is clear that interventions that can preserve or improve mobility in older adults could produce increases in both quantity and quality of life."

“In a paper published in the September issue of the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, researchers closely examined the factors that affected Health-Related Quality-of-Life for a group of older Americans. The study revealed that mobility is a key factor impacting quality of life for older adults. “

Wow, the fact that this info had to be proven in study is really sad. When I was a kid this type of info was just good old school common sense knowledge. My father and other adults use to even say the same thing about your brain. He would often lecture me about making sure that I stayed well read because it is great exercise for the brain and will reduce the risk of brain deterioration that can often accompany old age.
When I was a teenager, I use to often say that I will fight old age all the way to the grave.:happy:

Hey thanks for the article Anthony. It is always good to keep this type of info fresh and consistently circulating in the minds of those without a clue.
