Exercise and Your Health

Posted by Blog Sunday, February 20, 2011

More than two hundred years ago, the Scottish physician Dr. William Buchan observed, “Of all the causes which conspire to render the life of man short and miserable, none have greater influence than the want of proper exercise.” History is a great teacher, but before you commit thirty minutes of each day to exercise, you deserve an update on eighteenth-century wisdom.

Over the past fifty years, scientists have provided plenty of evidence that exercise is important, even crucial, for good health. Although physical activity can reduce your risk of many illnesses, its most important impact is on  cardiovascular disease.
