The entire medical system in the United States addresses disease. The overlooked key point, however, is that disease costs, while health saves. Regrettably, a cost/benefit formula concerning the health-care consequences of physical exercise has not yet been developed. Well-documented clinical studies exist, however, that unequivocally address the positive impact that exercise has on health-care costs. Health Wealth: Spending Health Dollars Wisely presents a detailed review of the issues involved and explains why it is everyone's responsibility to convey the message of the value-added consequences of engaging in physical activity on a regular basis to the policy makers.

Among the topics covered:
  • Disease costs
  • Health saves
  • Exercise-deficiency diseases cost hundreds of billions of dollars
  • Policy makers need better fiscal information
