Health and Fitness

On tonight‘s show we are going to talk about health and fitness. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, nearly half of American youths aged 12 through 28 are not active on a regular basis.  Numerous studies show how that a lack of physical activity is one of the major risk factors for cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, and colon cancer.  If we continue this trend we will be a sick nation. Stay tuned as we talk about health and how to live a healthy life style….
