Fact

It's never too late to benefit from healthy living. Many older people believe that there is no point in changing bad habits. They think, for example, that decades of overindulgence in alcohol or fat-laden food, or lack of exercise, has already taken its toll on their body and that the subsequent damage is irreversible. Certainly, it's better to start healthy habits early, but the truth is, it's almost never too late to benefit from healthy living. Not only can we recover much lost function and decrease risk, but in some cases we can actually increase function beyond our prior level.
