If you're looking for a doctor's prescription to the very best thing you can do for your health, the following 9 minute animated lecture, 23 1/2 hours, by Doctor Mike Evans, is a MUST view.

One of the many take aways; if you watch television for six hours a day your life expectancy is decreased by five years! Believe it or not American's average about five hours a day. Editors note: depending on the content, watching television might also dramatically lower your intelligence quotient.

Not surprisingly, the best thing we can do for our health is to be physically active on a regular basis. The highest rate of return on investment is simply 30 minutes a day of some sort of exercise, which can be moderate, such as walking.
