Get Your Exercise!
A new study by cardiologists reveals that of all the things you can do that might negatively impact your health, a sedentary lifestyle is the most deadly. In fact, poor physical fitness was actually worse than being diabetic or a current smoker!
On a related note, the study also looked at the potential risk of being overactive. The researchers found tno link between an abundance of exercise and an early grave. In other words, you can never get too much exercise, but it’s definitely possible to get too little.
