— Biden is slightly healthier, study says, but both presidential candidates may be ‘super-agers’ – JAMES RAINEY (DIERSEN: What do you say to those who promote age discrimination? All my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes promote age discrimination a) to get rid of those who are older than they are and/or b) to curry favor with younger people. I should write a book about my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes. I would focus on those who have lots of religious, government, political, and/or financial clout in Wheaton’s West District, in Wheaton, in Milton Township, in DuPage County’s 4th District, in DuPage County, and in Illinois. I would focus on present and past leaders of the Milton Township Republican Organization, DuPage County Republican Central Committee, Illinois Republican Party, Wheaton, DuPage County, Illinois, and Wheaton Chamber of Commerce.)
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The presidential candidates and their supporters will likely keep belittling the other guy as a doddering old fool, but a group of geriatric experts say in a new paper that both President Trump and challenger Joe Biden appear to have the physical and cognitive tools to make it through four years in the White House. In fact, the two candidates’ relative good health and other advantages — parental longevity, access to top-notch healthcare and abstinence from smoking and drinking — suggest both men are likely to become long-living “super-agers,” who thrive well into their 80s, or beyond, according to a draft report written by three medical doctors and four researchers with expertise in public health, survival analysis and statistics. . .While the candidates are unusually healthy for their age, Biden is projected to live longer because of his routine fitness regimen, compared with Trump’s relatively sedentary lifestyle and obesity, according to the paper. which will be published in October in the Journal on Active Aging. The journal bills itself as “an indispensable tool for professionals who are dedicated to older adults living as fully as possible regardless of age.”)
