Exercise and Healthy Living

According to the CDC:

The percentage of people 18 and over who met the Physical Activity Guidelines for both aerobic and muscle-strengthening activity: 21.7%

Exercise for your heart and your muscles together is crucially important for many reasons!

For today’s example, its importance is disease prevention.

U.S. Department of Health & Human Services:

Recent reports project that by 2030, half of all adults (115 million adults) in the United States will be obese.

Obesity-related illness, including chronic disease, disability, and death, is estimated to carry an annual cost of $190.2 billion.

Proper and regimented exercise can absolutely lower the risks of several caners.

It can also improve a patients outcome after a cancer diagnosis is made…with a doctors consent to do so of course.

So let’s all do ourselves a favor and be contributors to raising our national average of active people well beyond 22 percent!
