March 5, 2018Sales of energy drinks to children under 16 have been banned in most major UK supermarkets, amid concerns about high levels of sugar and caffeine. Boots is also joining supermarkets such as Asda, Waitrose, Tesco and the Co-op in introducing the rule.

March 5, 2018. It’s official: people who regularly exercise are in much better nick in old age. But now researchers at the University of Birmingham and King’s College London have confirmed that those who regularly workout manage to reduce their biological age as they get older. They studied 125 amateur cyclists aged between 55 and 79 - 84 of whom were male and 41 were female. They underwent a series of tests in a lab and were compared to adults who did not partake in regular exercise, but who were aged between 20 and 36. And scientists found that as well as managing to keep hold of muscle mass and strength - despite being so much older, the cyclists’ immune systems seemed to not age either. The men’s testosterone levels also remained high - suggesting that they may have avoided much of the ‘male menopause’. So it looks like the key to looking and feeling younger is getting moving. Find an exercise you genuinely enjoy - be that dance, swimming or spin - and prepare to reap the rewards in later life. Metro.
