…"no single intervention has greater promise than exercise to reduce the risk of virtually all chronic diseases simultaneously…" Booth et al. Journal Applied Physiology 2000.
Making a positive impact on chronic diseases
Chronic conditions include any injury or illness that has been present for longer than six months, including cardiovascular disease, diabetes, arthritis, obesity, pulmonary conditions, multiple sclerosis or cancer. Exercise and diet applied correctly can make a difference to managing and preventing these chronic conditions.
