Two Factors Reduce Mortality in Older Women.

No surprise here. In women 70 to 79 years old, low consumption of carotenoids from fruits and vegetables, as well as low physical activity, strongly increased the risk of mortality. A simple message here: the more fruits and veggies you eat, and the more you exercise, even at an older age, the greater your chance of a longer life! The study appeared in the most recent issue of Journal of the American Geriatric Society.
