Physical Activity: The 21st Century`s Solution to Global Medical Concerns looks at the positive role that engaging in physical activity on a regular basis has in helping control the onset of several widely spread non-communicable diseases (NCDs). The DVD presents a relatively brief history of exercise medicine, as well as discusses the fact that inactivity is a major risk factor for NCDs. The DVD also points out the basic dose-responses attendant to exercise and reviews that minimum amount of physical activity required to help prevent NCDs. In addition, the DVD explores the potential impact of physical activity on two specific diseases-diabetes and Alzheimers. Finally, the DVD details several examples of steps that can be undertaken to get people to exercise more.

Among the topics covered:
  • Short history of exercise medicine
  • Physical inactivity is a major risk factor for NCDs
  • Dose-responses of physical activity/exercise
  • Diabetes
  • Alzheimer`s disease
  • The DR`s extra study
  • European dementia prevention initiative
  • How to get people to take exercise or avoid inactivity?
