Exercise is the Best Medicine
Abstract: An exercise program designed to improve fitness is essential for most adults. Exercise decreases the risk of cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, some cancers, depression, and anxiety. Most fail to achieve recommended exercise levels. Exercise Is Medicine is an initiative to equip primary care providers with resources, education, and strategies to increase physical activity and reduce sedentary behavior. Exercise is good for you. These words have been a medical mantra for the last 40 years, but the adage is still as fresh as ever. As life expectancy climbs, many people survive into their 80s, 90s, and beyond. Better medicines and safer procedures can largely be thanked for the added years. But exercise maybe the key to why some people not only survive but also thrive in later life.
