Canadians Aren't Getting Enough Exercise

I guess more Canadians should take up hockey, because a new study in International Journal of Behavioral Nutrition and Physical Activity reveals 56% of participants, 884 adults, ages 18 to 60, living in cities, suburbs and rural areas are mostly inactive. People with less education and lower income get even less exercise, compared to people with more education and higher family income; ScienceDaily investigates.

Exercise keeps you fit, we all know that, but it also improves mood and mental function and even reduces stress and anxiety. I love exercise! I exercise six days a week. Now, for some great exercise tips check out Dr. Fuhrman’s DVD Osteoporosis Protection for Life.

In related news, a recent study showed diabetics who stay active have less chance of dying. But astronauts in space have to exercise even harder to stay strong.
