It is a known fact that following a lifestyle that includes eating fruits and green vegetables tends to make people live longer and have a healthy standard of living. People who stick to this healthy regime suffer from fewer diseases throughout their life. But a new report that examined the health of Aussie men has come up with a finding that would amaze many people.
It has found that older Australian men eat more fruits and vegetables as compared to their younger counterparts, but irrespective of this fact, they less active and fatter. The researchers of the study analyzed the health of indigenous, rural, poor, migrant and older males and compared all of them to find lifestyle trends.
There are nearly 12% of the Australian men that fall under the age category of 65 or over. What is more profound is the fact that by the time they hit that age, they prefer eating fruits and vegetables rather than other stuff. There are just 37% of men over the age of 65 that have a risk of inadequate fruit intake, while males between the age of 16 and 64 amount to 57%. But the fact of the matter is that older people are not getting proper exercise which is proving to be a hindrance.
