In the ongoing debate of what constitutes good health

Today, the New York Times says "It's Better to Be Fat and Fit Than Skinny and Unfit."

Seriously. If you can't manage a good pace (walking only!) on a treadmill, for as little as 8 minutes, you are at a much higher risk of death than someone who can, no matter what your respective BMIs are. So this is me saying, once again, there needs to be less focus on body weight and more on getting exercise.

Sadly, this report supports my going to the gym today, which I'd prefer not to do.

In other longevity news, there's a fun article about chameleon that only lives a year. “If you go into a forest during the dry season, the whole population of chameleons there will be represented by eggs.” Cool, huh?
