Subtitle: "How Everyday Movement Will Prevent Pain, Illness, and Early Death -- and Exercise Alone Won't"

Dr. Joan Vernikos, former director of NASA’s Life Sciences Division, presents a comprehensive scientific explanation for why Americans are so unhealthy — and delivers the solution, an easy-to-follow, scientifically proven plan to restore Americans’ health.

In her groundbreaking research at NASA, Vernikos discovered that living with constant resistance to the force of gravity is essential to good health. In weightlessness, astronauts, who are far fitter than the average adult, seem to rapidly age; their muscles, bones and overall health degenerate to levels usually seen in elderly people.

Searching for a way to duplicate this degeneration in volunteer medical subjects on Earth, Vernikos found that keeping subjects resting and immobile caused the same health problems as extended weightlessness. Vernikos’ NASA studies are the only research that has provided a complete explanation for why sitting is so bad for health. Excessive sitting, like extended weightlessness, removes the body from its natural condition of constantly resisting gravity. Being weightless rapidly ages the body; staying immobile has the same effect as being weightless; and therefore modern American sedentary lifestyles promote rapid aging and poor health.
