Abstract: Exercise is a medicine that has been shown to prevent or treat many disabling or fatal diseases including noncardiovascular diseases such as non-insulin-dependent diabetes, osteoporosis, hypertension, and breast and colon cancer. The current prevailing view in the medical world is that more active or fit individuals tend to develop less coronary heart disease (CHO) than their sedentary counterparts and if CHO develops it tends to occur later in life and is often less severe.
