Science recently has begun to show us that most of the consequences of aging are really the consequences of inactivity. Sure, exercise won't add collagen to your skin, but it will keep your bones and muscles strong and healthy, and add years to your life--quality years. Ralph Paffenbarger, an epidemiologist with three university affiliations, crunches the numbers from the landmark College Alumni Health Study (it followed Harvard University and Pennsylvania State University graduates for nearly four decades). He concludes that burning an extra 2,000 calories a week in physical activity is enough to reap a life that's about 25 percent longer than a sedentary existence would produce. The book also shows you highly doable ways to reach that number.From the Publisher:
