The idea doesn't shock me! I was just telling my BF last night that exercise is the fountain of youth. Sorry I don't have time for a more in-depth review right now but I had to share it with everyone. What do you think?

How cool is that?! But like you, I'm not at all surprised. I totally agree that exercise is the Fountain of Youth and plan to be doing squats when I'm 95. :strong:

Seriously, when we read about all of the myriad of benefits of exercise, how can anyone, of any age or weight, justify not exercising?

Thanks, Megan. Interesting research. I do like reading about things at the cellular level - it's fascinating.

And staying at that level, if I may: someone in RL told me yesterday that sugar affects collagen (in the skin) adversely. Haven't had time to look into it yet. Does it ring a bell with anyone?
