The Medical Benefits of Exercise (and are the taxpayers getting their money's worth?)

Disease Management Care Blog readers may recall this post on the benefits of exercise in combating depression among persons with chronic disease. Thanks to the GlassHospital, the DMCB became aware of this entertaining, informative, accurate and savvy video on the benefits of putting limits on sitting, eating and sleeping to 23 1/2 hours a day.

It's very interesting:

Contrast the video above (by the way, it's Canadian) with this CDC website (and practically nothing from the Feds on YouTube) and ask yourself two questions:

1) which approach to health promotion more likely to have a greater impact, and

2) is Washington D.C. really giving the taxpayers their money's worth when it comes to awareness of the benefits of prevention?
