Exercise is Medicine

I usually talk about how food is medicine – but it’s not the only factor in being healthy – or getting healthy for that matter. ¬†Exercise improves immune function, mental health, sleep quality, blood pressure, helps prevent cancer, cardiovascular disease, diabetes, obesity, depression and osteoporosis, and increases your lifespan. ¬†It’s at #5 on the list of factors causing mortality (death), behind diet at #1 and smoking at #2, but #5 is still worth giving some focus to.
