From the Paper:

"One of the most important aspects of the ongoing political debates about health care reform is the corresponding increase in recognition of the importance of preventative medicine, including long-term lifestyle changes associated with longevity and quality of life. Presently, the federal government estimates that approximately two-thirds of the adult American population is either overweight or clinically obese. Likewise, overweight and obesity among children are also becoming an epidemic national concern. In addition their effects on the individual, there is a collective impact on society in the form of publicly-funded health care costs that are necessary to treat the consequences of poor lifetime health-related choices.
"Cardiovascular exercise is one of the principle components of a sensible long-term approach to improving health and longevity. It contributes directly to the national anti-obesity effort, and it enables aging individuals to maintain higher bone density levels, thereby reducing fractures in old age. Cardiovascular exercise is important for the functional health of the heart, the circulatory system, and the skeletal joints, as well as also reducing the incidence of both depression and dementia-related intellectual deterioration among the elderly."
