A study that was published in the the British medical journal "Lancet" found that taking up or maintaining light to moderate physical activity reduces heart attacks and extends the life span for middle aged to older men.
It is interesting to note that this began as a heart disease study, but it ended up finding that exercise extends life and reduces heart attacks in all men, with or without heart disease.
The research spanned 20 years. The Department of Primary Care and Population Sciences at the Royal Free Hospital in London conducted it. Almost 8,000 men, aged 40 to 59 were selected from 24 British towns and enrolled in the study. The researchers kept track of their physical activity and exercise information.
The men who were sedentary, inactive, and who did a lot of sitting, at the beginning of the study and who began at least light activity by a few years lager, had a significantly lower death rate from all causes than those who remained sedentary.
The study concluded that taking up or maintaining light physical activity improved the life span and reduced heart attacks for both groups of men (those who had heart disease and those who didn't). These results are actually quite sweeping. By doing some light to moderate exercise, people can strengthen their heart and prolong their life.
Some other tips for good health and longevity include:
1. Choose healthy foods: Increase salads, cooked vegetables and raw fruits. Eat healthy, preferably organic and grass-fed animal proteins. Eat nuts and seeds and drink lots of pure filtered water in between meals.
2. Take a walk each day, or a couple of short walks. This supports virtually every organ and system in the body to stay strong, detoxify impurities, and ease aches and pains.
3. Take supplements: Fish oil helps reduce inflammation and supports the eyes and brain, digestive enzymes increase absorption of foods and reduce gas, MSM reduces stiffness and arthritis, and Sleep Minerals II provides calcium, magnesium, and vitamin D in some highly absorbable forms to support good sleep.
4. Reduce stress. Take breaks to do artistic or creative things that are enjoyable. Keep communications with others upbeat and positive.
