Oddly enough, new research found that if you are unable to balance on one foot for 10 seconds, you’re twice as likely to die over the next decade.  So if any of you girls were sent to charm school when you were young and taught proper balance and posture, now is the time to thank your mother.   The peer-reviewed study was published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine and found that poor balance is linked to frailty in older adults and one’s musculoskeletal fitness is a prime indicator of declining health.
