It's official: researchers have discovered that low levels of fitness are bad for your health

by Mike Adams, the Health Ranger, NaturalNews Editor

Stop the presses! Medical researchers have something Earth shattering to report: lower levels of physical fitness increase your risk of heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure and other ailments. Yes, it's true: the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) has published the research!

Now, sarcasm aside, it is nice to see some people studying the natural route to health. Body movement is key to staying healthy, and almost any form of movement works: walking, yoga, pilates, dancing, strength training, swimming... you name it, it's good for you. If you take a close look at the U.S. population's problem with obesity, you realize that half the problem is that people simply don't move around much anymore.
