Recently, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced that 80% of American adults do not get the recommended amount of exercise each day.  This fact will have tragic consequences on the  health status of the US population, including increased cases of cancer, heart disease, and diabetes. As outlined in a May, 2013 CBS News article, "physical inactivity can lead to obesity and Type 2 diabetes, according to the CDC, while exercise can help control weight, and reduce the risk for developing heart disease and some cancers, while providing mental health benefits."
