Health Risk Factors by Surgeon General Darryl Addington, MD

Author: Mick Pitzer

The number one risk for your health is smoking. This has been well known for years, if you use tobacco in any way you should quit. The number two factor is lack of exercise. Before starting an exercise program, consult your personal physician. The recommended cardio-vascular exercise is 150 minutes per week. Walking is a great way to exercise, you can almost do this all your life. Swimming is great for people with arthritis and joint problems. Water aerobics would great for those with balance and joint problems. Cardio is increasing your heart rate above your resting rate. Strength training is also needed, twice a week. Abdominal muscle training, arms and legs. You do not need to lift heavy weights, more repetitions with a lighter weight is great for toning. Lack of exercise will increase the rate of cardiovascular disease, may increase blood pressure- chances of diabetes-aging-dementia-osteoporosis and depression.

It is never too late to start exercising. Exercising started in your 70's has been shown to benefit by reducing cardio-vascular disease and cancer.
