Flexibility : Joints change with age and this can lead to stiffness, decreased range of motion and more injuries. Balance : Each year, hospitals see over 300,000 patients for broken hips due to falling. Balance exercises can help you avoid injuries from falls and keep you independent and mobile.

Factors affecting Metabolism • Your metabolism is determined by gender, age, amount of muscle you have compared to body fat and the amount of exercise you do on a regular basis. Male's rates are higher than females because of testosterone. Infants and growing children have higher metabolic rates than adults because of growth hormone. Research into the use of HGH (human growth hormone) in adults show that it doesn't increase metabolic rate nor is it a fountain of youth. HGH has some negative side effects for fully grown adults and is only prescribed for children that are not growing at a normal rate.

Bisphenol A (BPA) • Bisphenol A (BPA) is used to make polycarbonate plastic, epoxy resins for can linings, and in carbonless paper used for credit card receipts. • Because of its widespread use, almost all Americans are exposed to this common chemical. BPA levels in adult urine range from 0.4 to 8 parts per billion. • The low doses tested in the animal studies can affect virtually every major organ system of the body. Effects include: • • Early onset of female sexual maturity. • Increased postnatal growth in both sexes. • Increased prostate size in male offspring exposed in the womb. • Decreased sperm production and fertility in males due to developmental exposure. • Adverse affects on chromosome segregation in eggs. • Altered immune function. • Hyperactivity, aggressiveness and impaired learning.
