The NBC Today show on Monday morning offered a quiz to help a viewer to assess her own biological age, link here. I couldn’t get the NIH link on body mass index to resolve, so I had to estimate mine. I wound up with a score of -20, or 2 years credit, making my biological age “just” 69.
On a weekend trip at the end of June to NYC for Pride, I almost got hit by a car (or had a foot run over) in lower Manhattan Sunday morning as I was racing to the 9/11 Memorial site (I was late), the car speeding and making a very illegal turn. I jumped out of the way just in time.
Update: July 29
NBC Nightly News cited a report that regular running or fast walking, even for only about ten minutes three times a week, can reduce the risk of heart attack by up to 45% at any age over 50.
