Myths about exercise

Saw this posted on someone's FB page. Unfortunately, there are a lot of people who actually believe this pseudo-logic about exercise and staying healthy.

Here's my take on each of these you agree or disagree?

1. Postman - Exercise DOES have a protective effect against other risk factors, but it doesn't make you immortal if you still do the negative behaviors. Many studies show that exercise has a definite protective effect.

2. That's because that's the way a whale was CREATED to be and function! We don't live in an ocean and dive down to great depths, so we're designed differently.

3. Sin is the author of death, not exercise. A sedentary, obese rabbit lives a lot shorter life.

4. We aren't designed like turtles so if we did the same, we would fall apart.

Bottomline: We humans were DESIGNED and CREATED to be active! If you don't use it, you lose it. Plain and simple. Don't believe the junk that's on the Internet and don't compare ourselves to animals because we aren't like them!
