Just a Little Walk Improves Heart Disease and Colon Cancer

Posted on April 1, 2008. Filed under: Fitness, health, wellbeing | Tags: , , , , , , |

French Doctors report that an overview of the latest research into spot and good health proves that moderate, frequent exercise improves your chances of surviving and controlling heart disease, diabetes, colon cancer, respiratory disease and depression.

This report by the National Institute for Health and Medical Research (inserm) sets a benchmark, for adults of at least 30 minutes of modest exercise, such as fast walking, at least 5 times a week, or 20 minutes of harder exercise, such as jogging 3 times a week.

Younger people are advised to to twice this.

In addition Inserm recommends “strengthening” and stretching at least twice a week, and even advises the elderly to do more stretching.

Daily activities such as climbing stairs and cleaning your bathroom can also be included in the exercise tally. (Good to know doing housework is good for something :0)

Exercise reduces Cholesterol, helps you loose weight, reduces blood pressure, reduces stress and helps to give you a positive attitude. I can’t believe the government haven’t found a way to tax it !!!!!!
