But, just how much exercise—and at what intensity—is necessary to ward off chronic disease? Until now, the specific dose-response of exercise (as a drug-free way to reduce your risk of chronic disease) has required a lot of guesswork. Along these lines, a groundbreaking new report—based on a meta-analysis of 174 studies about the link between physical activity and chronic disease—was published today. This analysis hones in on a ballpark range of physical activity (based on cumulative weekly metabolic exertion) that appears to reduce the risk of five chronic diseases.

Darwin's 'thinking path', at Down House, Kent, UK The "sandwalk" was a gravel track near Down House, his home in Kent – he called it his "thinking path". Every day, once in the morning and again in the afternoon, Darwin strolled and reflected amongst the privet and hazel, often alongside his fox terrier.

According to reports, the new study has said that by seeing the dental specialist regularly and by cleaning the teeth, you can actually have an added advantage of avoiding pneumonia by reducing the bacteria that can otherwise infect your lungs/respiratory process.
