ACTIVITY CONTROL (EXERCISE)
Recent gerontology studies in the United States, Japan, France, and other countries have shown that centenarians lead active, healthy lives; rather, I should say, they are healthy because they are active. A few centenarians confirm this very distinctly.
Jeanne Calment of Arles, France--the world's oldest person, who died in August 1997 at the age of 122--rode a bicycle at 100 and released a rap CD at 121. She never felt bored and stayed interested throughout all her long life. Herbert Kirk, 101, graduated in 1993 from Montana State University with a bachelorís degree in art as a sculptor. Kirk attributes his longevity to exercising: he played tennis into his eighties and still loves to run. At the age of ninety-five, Kirk won two gold medals in 800-meter and 5-kilometer races, and one silver medal in a 200-meter race at an international seniors' track meet in Helsinki, Finland. Kubo Kotaro, 101, who is called the "Japanese tennis boy," is a three-time champion in tennis competitions among centenarians. When asked how long he expects to live, he replied: "At least to 110."
