Want to Live Longer? Get a Grip!

British researchers say a firm handshake could be a sign of a longer life expectancy. Scientists found that elderly people who could still give a firm handshake and walk at a brisk pace were likely to outlive their slower peers. They found simple measures of physical capability like shaking hands, walking, getting up from a chair and balancing on one leg were related to life span, even after accounting for age, sex and body size. Of 14 studies dealing with grip strength, the researchers found that those with the strongest hand grasps tended to live longer than those with limp grips. The death rate over the period of the studies for people with weak handshakes was 67 percent higher than for people with a firm grip. All this in case you need another reason to lose the limp, wet fish handshake – eeeewww!!!!!!
