Researchers are delving into issues of health and quality of life as more people are living into their 80s. In a recent study from the University of California Davis School of Veterinary Medicine, researchers found feeding mice a healthy, high fat diet not only increased how long the mice lived but also improved their physical strength. These changes may reduce the potential for losing independence as you age. Senior author and nutritionist, Jon Ramsey, commented:
"The results surprised me a little. We expected some differences, but I was impressed by the magnitude we observed -- a 13 percent increase in median life span for the mice on a high fat vs high carb diet. In humans, that would be seven to 10 years. But equally important, those mice retained quality of health in later life."

Mars is the fourth planet from the sun and named after the Roman god of war. Mars has approximately the same mass as Earth, but appears much larger. The surface gravity is only 37% of the earth’s gravitational pull which means you can jump three times higher.
