Squeeze in a few more minutes of exercise each day and you might squeeze in a few more days of living - as well as better squeeze into your pants!

A recent study showed that moderately intensive physical activity performed 5 days a week can help lessen the risk of death from all medical causes.

As is often stated, if that came in a pill we'd all be taking it!

Smoking Considered a Pandemic
Created on 8/28/2009
The Third Edition of the Tobacco Atlas was published this year and the statistics are more than sobering - they are devastating.

Hundreds of millions of people will die from smoking in this century unless concerted actions are taken around the globe. The actions need to be in place for youngsters as well as adults, because a significant number of people have their first experience with cigarettes under age 10 years.
