It's time to start leading a more active lifestyle! Your body was made to move, not to sit at a desk all day and in front of a television all night.
The first Surgeon General's Report on Physical Activity and Health was released on July 11, 1996. The report tells us that Americans are not getting the exercise they need. It is estimated that as many as 250,000 deaths per year in the United States are attributable to a lack of regular physical activity.
Acting Surgeon General Audrey F. Manley, M.D., said , "This report is nothing less than a national call to action. Physical inactivity is a serious nationwide public health problem, but active and healthful lifestyles are well within the grasp of everyone."
