Fountain of Youth from Prevention Magazine

The other day Joani Schultz sent me (Lynda) this study - 
Grandchildren may contribute to longevity, says a recent study in the journal Evolution and Human Behavior. Researchers found seniors who babysat their grandchildren on a regular basis had a 37% lower risk of dying during the 20-year study period than contemporaries who didn't have or didn't provide care for grandchildren. Experts credit the emotional lift and physical activity of caregiving, along with the sense of purpose it provides. It may also help keep seniors' brains active and alert.
Thank you Joani! Just more reasons to spend time with our grandchildren for sure!
