What is the key to a long life?

[WCCO-TV News, September 16, 2021] It’s something that used to be rare, but it’s becoming much more common. More people are living to 100, especially in the U.S.

Dr. Kathleen Woo-Rippe heads up the geriatrics population program for Allina. Woo-Rippe says there are a few reasons people are living longer.

She says another huge reason is physical activity.
