Q: Doctor, I've heard that cardiovascular exercise can prolong life. Is this true?
A: The heart is only good for so many beats, and that is it. Don't waste it on exercise. Everything wears out eventually. Speeding up the heart does not make you live longer; it is like saying you extend the life of a car by driving faster. Want to live longer? Take a nap.
