Never been so fit - I am not so sure

According to a poll carried out by Engage Mutual, seven out of ten over-50s questioned said they did more exercise than in their youth, while one-quarter felt physical activity had become a key part of their social lives.

I am not so sure about these stats. All the research I have seen suggests that about 20% of the 50-plus are wellness-aware. A very different number to 70%.

Of course this could mean (and probably does) that the 70% didn't take any exercise in their youth. Dick Stroud
