A new study shows elderly adults who engage in resistance training can reduce the effects of aging. Not only does exercise make most people feel better and perform physical tasks better, it now appears that exercise - specifically, resistance training -- actually rejuvenates muscle tissue in healthy senior citizens.

The study showed that most overweight but healthy middle-aged and older adults who took omega-3 supplements for four months altered a ratio of their fatty acid consumption in a way that helped preserve telomeres, tiny segments of DNA that when shortened, are known to cause aging.
