Key Word: Exercise and Health

Exercise is a kind of activity developed as human beings start to realize the importance of body health. Exercise helps improve the immune system to fight diseases and extend life. Statistics show that healthy people who do exercises regularly are more immune in cells and body fluid than those who do not, as exercise makes muscles and bones stronger. It is necessary for human beings.
