Exercise is Medicine
Category: Season 1
Daniel G. Drury, Ph.D.
Exercise, in and of itself, can have a profound effect on different aspects of health that rivals many prescription medications. Everyone knows that exercise is good for managing your weight. However, few realize that exercise can help prevent diabetes, control high blood pressure, decrease cancer risk, lower cholesterol and improve mental health (….and much, much more). Daily exercise can have a more profound effect on your health than your physician’s prescription pad.
