U.S. Surgeon General Calls on Doctors to Prescribe Exercise
Date:5/29/2008

"There is overwhelming evidence for the benefits of exercise in both the treatment and prevention of chronic disease," said Robert E. Sallis, M.D., ACSM president. "I urge all California physicians to log on to http://www.CalGovCouncil.org/ExerciseIsMedicine to sign up and support the program by prescribing exercise to their patients. Exercise really is a wonderful medicine ... and it's FREE!"

A 2007 survey conducted by ACSM found that nearly two-thirds of patients (65%) would be more interested in exercising to stay healthy if advised by their doctor. Only four out of 10 physicians (41%) talk to their patients about the importance of exercise, however.

Physical inactivity is a fast-growing public health problem in this country and contributes to a variety of chronic diseases and health complications, including obesity, coronary artery disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, cancer, depression and anxiety, arthritis and osteoporosis.
