Every so often an opportunity presents itself that simply can’t be passed up.

The comic that was scheduled to run today has been bumped thanks to this bit of news my Dad passed on to me this weekend;

Shopping May Improve Health

According to the Journal of Epidemiology and Community Health via BBC news online, of the 1,850 people aged 65 plus studied, those who shopped daily were 27% less likely to die than those who shopped infrequently with the biggest difference noted in men.

Shopping is going to involve physical activity, social interaction with other shoppers and because it’s quite a complex task it’s going to keep you mentally active.

I just couldn’t deny the Baroness science like that.
