Muscle on the elderly

Just wanted to point to a couple of studies that I saw today.  We know that retaining as much muscle as possible as we age for a whole bunch of reasons: function, trauma protection, balance, stronger bones, a reservoir of amino acids to support the immune system....etc

Old people need to train AND adding some additional protein helps.....

But they need to KEEP OFF STATINS.
