Want to live longer? Exercise, researchers say. According to a report published in The New England Journal of Medicine, adults who regularly engage in moderate physical exercise, such as stair climbing, walking, and sports that burn 2,000 or more calories a week, can significantly increase their life expectancy. The long-term study of some 17,000 men, all Harvard alumni, showed that physical activity could even counter an inherited tendency toward early death, as well as some death-dealing effects of high blood pressure and smoking. Each week, it takes a brisk 20-mile (32?km) walk, or the equivalent, to burn the 2,000 calories. You will have to do the math.Larry
