Mercola video: 2017 Full Interview

Getting consistent movement into your daily life is a profoundly powerful intervention for health and longevity. In 2017, I interviewed Joan Vernikos, Ph.D., on this topic. She’s a true pioneer in this field and was one of the first professionals to understand the value and importance of regular movement, not exercise, for the preservation of health and prevention of disease.

• Intermittent, low-intensity but high-frequency movement is a powerful, inexpensive and highly effective strategy for health and longevity.

• Without gravity, your vestibular system begins to deteriorate; hence, astronauts lose spatial awareness. Inactivity mimics low gravity situations, so inactivity will increase your risk of poor balance and the possibility of falling.

• Standing up for 15 minutes every two hours effectively counteracts the ill effects of sitting. Other data suggests standing up once for a minute or two every 20 to 30 minutes is a good countermeasure.
