Diet and Exercise Might Be Good For You

So apparently exercise is good for us these days.  In fact, exercise is so good for us, it actually helps keep our heart ticking and prevent us from having problems with that oh so important purveyor of life.

“Studies have shown heart patients benefit from exercise, and some have even shown it works better than surgical procedures. At a meeting of the European Society of Cardiology on Sunday, several experts said doctors should focus more on persuading their patients to exercise rather than simply doing angioplasties…

Hambrecht published a study in 2004 that found that nearly 90 percent of heart patients who rode bikes regularly were free of heart problems one year after they started their exercise regimen. Among patients who had an angioplasty instead, only 70 percent were problem-free after a year.”

Fucking geniuses. So I guess that we shouldn’t just eat whatever the fuck we want and sit on our asses all day and night and wait until we actually have that inevitable pain shoot down the left side of our body?  Maybe we should attack the problem before it happens; you know, that whole regiment called diet and exercise.  Or we could just continue to do what people do best, and continue to not give a fuck about ourselves and wait for the socialized health plan to save us all. God bless America.
