Regular Exercise Reduces Large Number of Health Risks

Regular exercise can reduce the risk and symptoms of more than twenty physical and mental health conditions, and can also slow down how quickly your body ages.

A review of research which summarized the findings of 40 papers published between 2006 and 2010 found that exercise affects conditions including cancer, heart disease, dementia, stroke, type 2 diabetes, depression, obesity and high blood pressure.

Science Daily reports:

“... [A]part from not smoking, being physically active is the most powerful lifestyle choice any individual can make to improve their health.”
