LHow do we get people to actually exercise though? =>ife with Cancer Improves with Exercise

Exercise improves quality of life for both cancer survivors and patients currently undergoing treatment, researchers found.

 

Dr. Veronica Note:

Exercise should be prescribed for every chronic condition. The issue is getting people to actual comply. Perhaps every hospital and cancer treatment facility ought to have a fitness center. When the patient is cleared for activity, part of the regimen should be a visit to the fitness facility after each visit and before going home.

Infographic: Are prescription drugs taking over the classroom? | Articles | Main | REAL World Wellness | Scoop.it
Learn about the rise in prescription drug use among students and see some of the dangers.

 

Dr. Veronica Note:

Kids are taking ADHD drugs to get better grades. Does this mean that parents who are not medicating their kids are putting their children at a disadvantage?

 

Is ADHD actually increasing or are there other factors that are going on to make it look like this condition is a problem? Interesting that ADHD is a condition of Western classroom culture.

 

ADHD drugs are gotten mostly from other kids who have the prescription rather than from a doctor. We have spawned a new generation of drug pushers in the upper eschelons of society. And along with that a different type of drug addict.

 

Taking ADHD is akin to steroids for the brain. Why is it not considered cheating like steroid use in sports by students?

 

The dangers of ADHD drugs have been well laid out yet 81% of student feel amphetamines are only slightly dangerous and only 2% perceived them as very dangerous.
