A study published in Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise found that people who exercised lightly (even just by moving around) throughout the day–versus for 30 minutes at one time–had greater cardiovascular fitness.
Increasing evidence highlights that accumulating sitting time in prolonged bouts is detrimental to cardiometabolic health. A meta-analysis published in the journal Sports Medicine found that even 2 minutes of walking after a meal is surprisingly good for you.

“Just completed the Anticancer Lifestyle program. Strongly encourage survivors, those looking to prevent cancer, those with risk factors, and really all of us to take this course. Most of us are unaware of how many risks exist, particularly from environmental factors. My favorite was the environment section.
