Skeletal muscle mass in relation to 10-year cardiovascular disease incidence among middle aged and older adults: the ATTICA study

While it is already known that skeletal muscle mass declines with increasing age, this study aimed to evaluate the relationship between skeletal muscle mass and 10-year cardiovascular disease incidence in healthy 45+ adults.  Findings from this study support the importance of skeletal muscle mass in the prediction of long-term cardiovascular disease risk among middle aged and older adults without any pre-existing cardiovascular disease.

Fortification need? Vitamin D deficiency linked to poor muscle function in older adults

Research has shown that low vitamin D levels in adults aged 60 years and over are linked to impaired muscle strength and performance.

The Try Guys Test Old Age Body Simulators

After age 30, you may begin to lose 3-5% of muscle mass per decade. In this series, the Try Guys wear a body suit developed by MIT that simulates an elderly adult and the physical changes that occur as you age.
