It’s never too late to get started & reap the benefits of exercise!

From this article: “Those who upped their activity in their 30s, 40s, and 50s had mortality rates 32 to 35 percent lower than the control group – just as much as those who exercised from adolescence straight through their 60s. That was true even after researchers factored in whether people smoked, their educational level, race, alcohol consumption, diet, and several other confounders that would influence mortality and could correlate with physical activity level”.
