(User Submitted) – Some researchers with perhaps a bit too much time on their, er, hands have correlated the strength of a person's handshake to longevity. In a study of 53,500 people under age 60, researchers found that those individuals with the weakest handshakes had a death rate 1.67 times higher than those with the strongest. And fast walkers...you're in luck, too. The slowest walkers have a death rate 2.87 times higher than the fastest walkers. Read the full article in the Guardian.
