I am doing way better with my walking program since I started walking indoors with the walking videos on Dr. Oz's RealAge site. I still walk outdoors in comfortable weather but with indoor walking the heat, rain, wind, mean dogs, traffic, and blisters pose no obstacles.

The most avid tea drinkers had significantly longer telomeres than the people who drank less than a cup/day. It's thought the antioxidants in tea help keep them long.
