Caption: Old people's home. Elderly people exercising in an old people's home in Iceland. Iceland has a high life expectancy, with many people living into their nineties or to over one hundred. This exercise session was photographed as part of a study on the population of Iceland. The study, being carried out by deCODE genetics (founded 1996), a company based in Iceland, is looking at the genome, family history and medical history of the Icelandic population. It is hoped that this will help researchers discover genes that affect ageing and contribute to conditions such as cancer and cardiovascular disease. Photographed in 2000.
