Reading books is healthy
According to This Week news magazine, a Yale study found that people over 50 who read a book at least 30 minutes a day live an average two years longer than non-readers. They say reading a love story or a mystery or thriller can trigger cognitive responses like empathy, social perception, and emotional intelligence, while reading newspapers apparently fails to provide the same benefits. The study’s authors concluded that “The benefits of reading books include a longer life in which to read them.”
So come on, get healthy. Resolve to read a good thriller starting today.

A bit of other good news: A British study has found that sex among folks 50 to 89 helped test subjects of both sexes score significantly higher in memory and other cognitive tests.
