More Exercise than Currently Recommended Needed


Many of the traditional systems of health included exercise as part of the daily regiment and emphasized its importance in the maintenance of health and prevention of disease. Mainstream medicine also promotes physical activity but their recommendations may be falling short as this recent research paper in the British Medical Journal points out:

Conclusions People who achieve total physical activity levels several times higher than the current recommended minimum level have a significant reduction in the risk of the five diseases studied. More studies with detailed quantification of total physical activity will help to find more precise relative risk estimates for different levels of activity.
