Shocking news: healthy diet and regular exercise still good for you

Reuters reports on a study showing that exercise and healthy eating may help prevent aging-related memory loss. They specifically cite omega-3 fatty acids and their anti-inflammatory effects; unfortunately, the article mentions only fish oils as a source of these, neglecting the plant based sources which may provide better results.

Anyway, whenever I hear of some new study like this, I always remember the words of Dr. Leonard "Bones" McCoy, when confronted with a purported "immortality" serum: "[L]engthen lives? Poppycock. I can do more for you if you just eat right and exercise regularly.".

Shocking news?? Not for me,

Shocking news?? Not for me, I know that regular exercise works perfectly if we have the right nutrition to help us. As for omega 3 I also know that it has extraordinary nutritional proprieties. I recently had a kal ultra omega 3-6-9 treatment and I could see the difference.

Mine too. This is never

Mine too. This is never shocking. Getting regular physical exercise is an important way to keep both mind and body alert, healthy and performing at their best. Exercises increase your breathing and heart rate. They improve the health of your heart, lungs, and circulatory system. Having more endurance not only helps keep you healthier; it can also improve your stamina for the tasks you need to do to live and do things on your own — climbing stairs and grocery shopping, for example. According to Scottsdale weight loss program, endurance exercises also may delay or prevent many diseases associated with aging, such as diabetes, colon cancer, heart disease, stroke, and others, and reduce overall death and hospitalization rates.
