Swimming in Good Reasons

Posted Jan 04 2012 12:30pm

Researchers from the University of South Carolina (South Carolina, USA) analyzed data collected on 40,547 men, ages 20 to 90 years, for the period 1971–2003. The team found that swimmers had 53%, 50%, and 49% lower all-cause mortality risk than did men who were sedentary, walkers, or runners, respectively. In addition, swimmers demonstrated greater cardiorespiratory fitness than walkers and sedentary people. 

Consult your anti-aging physician to assess the level of fitness appropriate to your medical needs; s/he will help design an exercise regimen tailored for you.
