Physical Activity is Key to Longevity

We all know that physical activity is the key to staying healthy, but a new study shows that it is also a very important factor in increasing one's lifespan. In fact, Israeli researchers recently discovered that even a little bit of exercise can help add a few years to the lives of those in their mid to late 80s. Now, I'm sure God has a little something to do with determining one's lifespan, but it doesn't hurt to take care of the body He blessed us with :-).
