A new study shows that shopping, er, sorry, retail therapy helps people live longer! Notice it's retail shopping, not online shopping. More here.

Maybe the study just selects those elderly who can still walk vs those who cannot (i.e. maybe the walking allows more retail therapy)

Are you sure it isn't the exercise, not the shopping? I absolutely loathe shopping! I'd rather be hiking!
