Exercise may be a potent antidote to the aging process by preserving our telomeres.  Telomeres are the nucleoprotein caps positioned at the end of chromosomes. They essentially protect our genetic data and have a role in cellular division. Longer telomeres are associated with a biologically younger person; whereas short telomeres can be associated with aging and degenerative diseases.

 

A study in Preventive Medicine,  led by Exercise Science Professor Larry Tucker found that people who exercised the most had biological aging markers that appeared nine years younger than those who were sedentary.

No Exercise Increases Mortality

 

The World Health Organization concluded that physical inactivity is one of the leading risk factors for death worldwide. Physical inactivity is a risk in the development of cardiovascular disease, cancer, and diabetes.

“Epidemiological studies over the past 50 years have unanimously shown that low physical activity and physical fitness is associated with high cardiovascular and total mortality.”
