60秒科学节目(SSS)是科学美国人网站的一套广播栏目,英文名称:Scientific American – 60 Second Science,节目内容以科学报道为主,节目仅一分钟的时间,主要对当今的科学技术新发展作以简明、通俗的介绍,对于科学的发展如何影响人们的生活环境、健康状况及科学技术,提供了大量简明易懂的阐释。

Even if you waited til midlife or later, it still pays to get your body moving because a study of about 3,400 people between the ages of 54 and 73 found that even moderate physical activity just once a week was associated with less physical and mental impairment.

Researchers tracked British adults for eight years. Even new moderate movers were about three times more likely to age free of major chronic disease or mental deterioration than were inactive adults. The findings are in the British Journal of Sports Medicine.

Adults who were already active at the start of the study were even better off. Four years after being initially evaluated, they were seven times more likely to be healthy than inactive people. That’s even after accounting for differences in age, sex, smoking, wealth, alcohol intake and marital status.

And since people tend to report more exercise than they really do, actually engaging in physical activity may boost health even more than we know.

So even if you haven’t exercised since you passed your last high school gym class in 1970 you can benefit by getting off the couch.
