Check out this link: 23 and 1/2 hours.
The medicine is exercise. Not tri-athalons, necessarily: just walking will do it.
If you spend 23.5 hours a day being inactive . . . . Dr. Michael Evans says that spending half an hour a day moving will make a huge difference in a huge range of disease-prevention.
Obesity and no exercise is a very bad combo; even if we're overweight, just a bit of exercise can make a big difference.
And that's so even if it's 10 minutes three times a day . . .
Is more exercise better? Is higher intensity exercise better? Sure . . .
But that 30 minutes a day is the significant factor, with the biggest return on investment.
"Sitting disease": yeah. Worth thinking about. (And sitting disease includes screen time . .. TV and, yup, computers).
Should doctors be prescribing exercise instead of medications?
