So Scary - where are we heading!!!!!

A new study published in the American Journal of Medicine reveals that less Americans are engaging in "healthy lifestyle" as compared with 2 decades ago.

The researchers are reporting the only 8% of today's patients engage in all five healthy behaviors -- maintaining a healthy weight, eating fruits and vegetables, drinking alcohol in moderation, exercising, and not smoking -- compared with 15% in 1988.

Enough said!!!!!

  1. Dr,
    What can a person do who can't, for whatever reason exercise.....is there something one can do, like stretching if say the balance mechanism is off-?
    I know for this person in question it is better than nothing but will it have any effect on their good health?
