They also enjoy 30-40% lower mortality rates [73]. In CR experiments with rodents, the longest-lived mice are both eating least and exercising most [17, 74]. , hormesis. If the body is shortening its lifespan when un-stressed by exercise, this is not because of any metabolic necessity, but simply that it is choosing a shorter lifespan. Exercise hormesis, like the CR effect, is impossible to reconcile with any of the non-programmed theories of aging. But it poses particular difficulty for theories of aging from oxidative damage, since exercise increases oxidative stress and increases lifespan.
