Since the beginning of written history civilizations have linked physical activity and diet with health and wellbeing.

Just a weeks’ worth of training can improve vision in older adults, a new study has found. Age-related declines in vision and visual processing are common and they can have serious negative consequences for the health and well-being of older adults.

This decline hampers their ability to see visual detail, and can hinder their ability to process information that is important for both balance and driving.
