  2. 2. Physical Education<br />
  3. 3. What Physical Education can do for you<br />Getting regular, moderate exercise just may be the closest thing we humans will get to &quot;a wonder drug&quot;. Consider this: The risk of developing diabetes, heart disease, osteoporosis, and many other health problems is lessened with regular physical activity. Some conditions, such as hypertension and type 2 diabetes, have a direct link to a sedentary lifestyle. Regular exercise also brings more immediate benefits to nearly every aspect of your life. It improves resistance to infections, joint flexibility, emotional well-being, energy and stress levels, and digestion. With continued, regular exercise, you will find that you will move easier, feel stronger, have better posture, and experience less chronic pain (if any at all).( http://weightloss.about.com/b/2007/09/16/why-you-need-to-exercise.htm<br />
  4. 4. What can happen if you do not live a healthy lifestyle…<br />Sedentary lifestyle is a medical neologism that is used to denote a type of lifestyle. It leads to lack of exercise, which causes muscle atrophy. Muscle atrophy is weakening of the muscles, which can lead to a physical injury.1<br />Fast Facts:<br />It is believed to be a factor in obesity, which can cause the following: <br />Type II diabetes.1<br />Heart disease.1<br />Depression.1<br />Hemorrhoids.1 (http://organizedwisdom.com/Sedentary_Lifestyle_Effects)<br />
  5. 5. What is Obesity?<br />Obesity is a term used to describe body weight that is much greater than what is considered healthy. If you are obese, you have a much higher amount of body fat than lean muscle mass.<br />Adults with a body mass index (BMI) greater than 25 but less than 30 are considered overweight.<br />Adults with a BMI greater than 30 are considered obese.<br />Anyone more than 100 pounds overweight or with a BMI greater than 40 is considered morbidly obese. <br />(https://www.google.com/health/ref/Obesity)<br />

  7. 7. What is Diabetes?<br />In type 2 diabetes, the beta cells still produce insulin. However, either the cells do not respond properly to the insulin or the insulin produced naturally is not enough to meet the needs of the body. So insulin is usually still present in a person with type 2 diabetes, but it does not work as well as it should. Some people with type 2 can keep it under control by losing weight, changing their diet, and increasing their exercise. Others take one or more medications, including insulin.<br />(http://www.diabetes.org/for-parents-and-kids/what-is-diabetes.jsp)<br />
