    Resistance training reverses muscle loss in the elderly, whereas aerobic exercise does not notes D. J. Millward from the University of Surrey in Surrey, England in an Editorial in the November 2008 issue of the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.

    "[A]ccording to the work of Campbell et al (2002), resistance exercise reverses sarcopenia [age-related loss of muscle] at relatively low protein intakes (ie, safe level of 0.8 [grams per kilogram of body weight per day]), and such training responses are not improved by higher protein intakes or influenced by protein quality [Campbell et al, 2007]," Millward writes.

    "Indeed high levels of aerobic exercise have long been known not to prevent sarcopenia [age-related loss of muscle], even though they are, assumedly, accompanied by high food and hence protein intakes."

    Comment: Hormone replacement therapy also reverses muscle loss in the elderly (Sorensen et al, 2001). REFERENCE
