Tennis Players Net Longer Lives than Other Jocks

The survival of each participant, average age 52, was tracked for about nine years. And compared to the people who said they had not broken a sweat doing one of the given physical activities, the risk of death from any cause was cut almost in half for racquet sport players at 47%. And mortality risk was 28% lower for swimmers, 27% lower for aerobics fans and 15% lower for cyclists. http://nydn.us/2fQFFw8
