Personal Health & Fitness
Personal Health & Fitness
The earliest humans were hunter-gatherers. For them food was scarce, and physical activity was critical to survival. Today, calorie-dense, fat-laden food is readily available and physical activity has been engineered out of our lives. How do we counteract a rising obesity epidemic and skyrocketing rates of chronic disease? One way is to create more walkable communities to encourage more physical activity. Mark visits someone who is doing just that-Cara Seiderman, Transportation Program Manager for the city of Cambridge, Massachusetts.
