'Couch Potato' Lifestyle Helps Drive Diabetes

Lack of exercise ups the risk for the disease, study finds HealthDay 1/26/07 "The benefits of physical activity in preventing diabetes are well-documented, but the message does not seem to be getting through, said study lead author Elaine Morrato...An estimated 20 million U.S. children and adults have diabetes, according to the American Diabetes Association..."

It should be a national outrage that a disease that could in large part be prevented by regular exercise afflicts 20 million! Think about that for a second. 20 million people with a disease that with more movement every day they would most likely have avoided. Doesn't reflect well on us as a society. And another reason why cutting physical education courses from schools is foolish.
