The New York Times

You're never too old to exercise: A 98-year-old show us why
The Washington Post
Early one morning about eight years ago, my mom, then just shy of 90, stood at the door of my home office and said that her left arm hurt between her shoulder and elbow. Scared she was having heart problems, I called our family doctor, who sent Mom for a full day of cardiac testing. One test required her to walk on a treadmill. The staff hovered, worried that she'd lose her balance and tumble off. She easily kept up and even had enough breath to inform her attendants: "You know, I work out with a personal trainer every week."

Does a perfect diet exist?
Competitor
"Have you seen the documentary Forks Over Knives?" Sue wrote. "The essence of the documentary is that humans greatly increase their risk of cancer and heart disease if any animal products are consumed.

If you're not familiar with the film Sue referred to, you'll get a full sense of what it's all about from watching the trailer.

Forbes
Vitamin fans, take note: An editorial in the journal Annals of Internal Medicine suggests that multivitamins provide no health benefit in the long-run, and in fact, "should be avoided." The authors of the piece, "Enough is Enough: Stop Wasting Money on Vitamin and Mineral Supplements," summarize the work of three review studies in the same journal, which together find no effect for vitamins on cardiovascular health, cancer risk, cognitive health or mortality.
