“Every day you learn something new.”
That is the absolute truth.
Today I learned that 15 minutes of exercise a day can add 3 years to your life … I would like to know if it doubles if I do 30 minutes? And will all that exercise lead to immortality?
I also found out that, “every single hour of TV watched after the age of 25 shortened the viewer’s life expectancy by just under 22 minutes”.
I watch 5 hours of Reality TV-junk a week… and I’m 33.
According to the Math I just did in my head, I’ve lost a month of my life to TV?!?
Can I gain back that month, and the many more to come, if I exercise 15 minutes a day, every day? Thanks in advance, genius study/research people.
MSNBC just informed of another study; 60,000 pounds of ground beef was recalled due to E.Coli.
That’s just one more reason to have dessert first.
Have a brownie, please!
