A large study suggests daily, low-dose aspirin does not prolong life or cut disability or dementia risk, and that it can raise the risk of bleeding.
Older adults who practice the ancient Chinese martial art tai chi have a lower risk of falling than those who participate in other forms of exercise.
Seniors are not the only ones at risk for falling — in fact, fall risk increases significantly after the age of 40, most notably, in women, say researchers.
As we age, posture, flexibility, and balance are critical to avoiding falls that can lead to fractures. Safely using exercise equipment such as an exercise ball, foam roller, and a yoga strap can help to improve your posture, flexibility, and balance.
