Exercise and longevity

Here's a link to a news story about a recently-published study on fitness and longevity in older adults. I found it interesting.

Good article.
"Since it is recent physical activity that offers protection," Mandic said, "it is important to maintain regular physical activity throughout life."
Unfortunately it won't get nearly as much media coverage as the article about exercise not helping with weight loss.
