There’s an irony to the video I’ve embedded below. Basically, it requires you to watch a screen to tell you in part, guess what, spending so much time in front of a screen is killing you.
But the nine-minute video is absolutely worth watching and then sharing with your friends. It reframes the question of why we need to be active. Note I said “be active” and not “exercise.” And it states the argument bluntly, with eye-opening figures about why low-impact activity is better for us than many of the “cures” that pharma pushes at us in the form of pill bottles.
So watch the video, and I think you’ll agree that it’s pretty easy to find even 30 minutes over the course of a day to be active.
If you’d like more information, the video was made by Dr. Mike Evans, who could be, or perhaps should be, the Dr. Oz of Canada. Evans is professor at the University of Toronto and staff physician at St. Michael’s Hospital. Follow him on Facebook and Twitter, and help spread the word that you can’t spell alive without most of active. Or something like that.
