Moderate joggers lived the longest during a 30-year study. The green bars show joggers who had a significantly lower risk of dying during the study compared with people who didn't exercise. The blue bars do not show statistically significant differences with non-joggers.

Until further studies can help physicians personalize their advice on exercise, researchers agree that the safest bet is to listen to your body and cut back if you experience pain or excessive fatigue between workouts. Many people check off marathons and triathlons from their bucket lists and then ease back into shorter workouts.

Resistance training with weights, balance exercises, and stretching also become more important as the body ages, to combat the loss of muscle mass, balance, and flexibility. “Optimal aging includes not just cardiovascular fitness but retention of overall muscle strength,”

Michael Wiener's insight:

This is very interesting as most men and women think the longer they workout, the better. It's good to know that moderate exercise can do a lot in improving health and fitness. Consuming the right types of foods at the right amount is probably the major player in maintaining ideal weight resulting to great level of physical fitness.

 

Exercising too much might not do anything good if one do not watch what he/she eats.

Bypassing Diabetes

Bypassing Diabetes | Natural Male Enhancement Solutions | Scoop.it

Though existing research has shown that gastric bypass surgery resolves type 2 diabetes, the reason has remained unclear. A research team at Boston Children’s Hospital, has identified the small intestine—widely believed to be a passive organ—as the major contributor to the body’s metabolism, based on a study in rats. The report appears in the July 26, 2013, issue of Science.

Weight loss and improved diabetes often go hand in hand, but type 2 diabetes often disappears even before weight loss occurs after gastric bypass. To investigate why this happens, The team spent one year studying rats and observed that after gastric bypass surgery, the small intestine changes the way it processes glucose. The team saw the intestine using and disposing of glucose, thereby regulating blood glucose levels in the rest of the body and helping to eliminate type 2 diabetes.

If this was performed on rats successfully, hopefully it could work on humans, as well... 100%

In practice the dramatic shedding of daibetic medications by patients immediately after bariatric surgery (such as gastric bypass or banding) is remarkable.
