reduced not only the risk of heart disease, but of cancer and neurological diseases such as Alzheimer's as well. Consider going for a 30-45 minutes run/exercise daily, 3 to
4 times per week is sufficient to receive the benefits not only adding your quality of life but also prevent diseases and help you live longer.
