Replacing a “typical Western diet” with a healthy “optimized diet” can add years to your life at any age, even in your sunset years, a major new study reveals.

Exercise is the secret for avoiding heart disease as you age. But how much exercise do you need in your later years? In a first-of-its-kind study, researchers in Italy claim to have found the answer.

Researchers looked at data from a study involving 3,099 Italians, aged 65 and older.

Between the years 1995 and 1997, medical teams examined the participants by taking medical histories, performing physical exams, health scans, and blood tests. Then, four and seven years later, they performed additional medical assessments. Medical teams continued tracking the participants’ overall health until 2018.

At each juncture, participants self-reported their physical activity. Moderate activities […]
