Surprising Facts About Exercise
You might know the common benefits of exercise: it makes you feel great, protects your heart and makes you look better. But somehow these benefits haven't nudged you into doing it.
Maybe these new discoveries will.
* Exercise may erase your genetic risk for Alzheimer's disease. A Washington University study of people aged 45-88 identified those with a genetic risk for Alzheimer's. But the risk carriers who were physically active and meeting the American Heart Association guidelines for regular exercise showed no buildup of amyloid plaques.
Thousands Benefit from Olympics
Though high unemployment rates have affected most of Europe, preparations for the 2012 Olympic Games have kept many thousands employed in Great Britain. Carpenters and plumbers, electricians and architects, brick layers and other specialists, created and built the Olympic facilities. They expanded the transit system, and updated hundreds of hotels, restaurants, and shops. Over 9,000 from the construction industry worked on the Olympic site. Another 15,000 are participating in the Opening and Closing Ceremonies.
Saving For the Long Term
At age 65, a man's average life expectancy is 20 additional years; at the same age, a woman has an estimated average of 22 additional years.
Planning your life on averages, however, is risky. Remember the story of a man who drowned crossing a river where a sign said the average depth was 3 feet (it was 12 feet in the middle).
Using average life expectancy to estimate how long your savings will last could leave you with no savings and a lot of living left to do. About 40 percent of women and 30 percent of men will live to age 90.
