Impact of Physical Activity Among Adults

Leisure-time physical activity from adolescence (15 to 18) to later adulthood (40-61) was linked to reduced risk of dying, stated new study.

The results suggest maintaining physical activity from adolescence into later adulthood was associated with lower risk of dying and so was increasing leisure-time physical activity in adulthood, including from age 41 to 60, for adults who had been less active.
