Hello there! I wrote about this fellow a few years ago. I think Jacinto was 73 years old at the time. He is now 80 years old.

It is important to continue being active well into your years. Otherwise, your health will decline so much if you just sit there, not doing anything. You might even find you will eliminate medications that have been prescribed to keep you alive if you start exercising. You just don't want to be breathing and living. You want the quality of your life to remain high until you are 100 years old.

Good health doesn’t  happen in absence of you not doing anything to make it happen. You need to exercise of course but more importantly, you need to eat right. You cannot be shoveling Macdonald's burgers and KFC chicken into your body daily and expect to stay healthy. These will kill you. You need to keep your lung capacity at high levels by aerobic exercise i.e. walking and some jogging. Studies show that by the time you are in your sixties your lungs will have lost up to 60% of their capacity as in your younger years (Dr. Al Sears in PACE Magazine page 5). This is an important correlation to keep in mind. Good lung capacity ensures life-giving oxygen to get to your cells and to keep your heart at its best.

So get out there and start moving.
