Chance of Dying in a Fall!

 Did you know that if a woman who is 65 years of age has a fall and breaks her hip, there is a 29% chance she will die within the first year - and that is if they get surgery.  If they do not get surgery the chance of dying is 79%!  And, if she does survive, the rest of her life is subject to chronic disability.

This is some shocking findings I learned from listening to a Mel Robbins podcast about the latest research about menopause with Dr. Mary Claire Haver.   

(Here’s a link to the podcast

This is why exercise is so important.  As Dr. Haver explained, we all need to move our bodies. 

You MUST do resistance (weight) training. 

For women, muscle is more important than being skinny.  This is no different for men.  And you are Never 2 Old to start!

Build strength, improve balance and coordination.
