How Active Is Your City?
Whether you run, lift weights or do yoga to get in shape, working out has major anti-aging benefits. “Exercise directly reduces the risk of heart disease, probably the risk of cancer and certainly the risk of diabetes and other health problems,” says Keith Roach, MD, Chief Medical Officer of Sharecare and co-creator of the RealAge® Test. In fact, exercising regularly can make your RealAge up to 2.3 years younger if you’re a man and 2.8 years younger if you’re a woman. “People who have the most to gain are those doing the least amount of exercise,” says Dr. Roach.
