Hot Topics. Exercise defines the key role that a sedentary lifestyle plays in the development of many common chronic health disorders and provides practical solutions to reversing this major trend in contemporary public health. The authors are two Americans whose professional lives are dedicated to increasing our understanding of the role of exercise in preserving human health. Chakravarthy is a physician and Booth a well-known clinical exercise scientist. The book provides a comprehensive account of the epidemiology, the biological mechanisms and the all-important randomised controlled trials that show that regular physical activity can prevent or delay the onset of chronic health disorders.
