Dr. Ruderman: Exercise may increase lifespan ‘regardless of past activity levels’

(KUSI) – New research examines the relationship between trends in physical activity levels over time and mortality risk among adults in middle age and older.

The findings suggest that it is never too late to start exercising, as becoming more active may lengthen lifespan “regardless of past activity levels.”

Alexander Mok, a doctoral researcher at the University of Cambridge in the United Kingdom, led the new research, which appears in the journal The BMJ.

Dr. Steven Ruderman from the Ximed Medical Group discussed the study on Good Morning San Diego.
