“Charles Eugster may be 93, but he has no less spring in his step than he did as a young man. In this talk from TEDxZurich, he brings us a powerful statistic: 92% of Americans over the age of 65 have one or more chronic diseases. While many clearly cannot be avoided, Eugster points out that inactivity is to blame for many of the diseases those who have lived long lives endure.” Read more here and be sure to watch the amusing, inspiring video below in which the energetic Mr. Eugster advocates continuing work, good diet, and exercise for a healthy life in our older years. He got a well deserved standing ovation! (Subscribers: click on the title of this post to go to the blog and see the video.)
