"People with a low CRF have a 70% higher risk of death from any cause compared with those with a high level of fitness."
Of course we already know aerobic conditioning is very healthy for us...but this takes it to a whole new level. According to this information doctors will be able to actually quantify a patients risk factor for illness based on Cardiorespiratory Fitness, measured by exercise stress testing. This information will then be used to prescribe specific exercise protocols (and hopefully nutritional advice) with follow-up testing.
Anyway...great stuff...check it out.
