Moderate exercise, at a dose of 20 minutes a day, reduces an individual’s risk of ever getting diabetes, dementia, depression, high blood pressure, heart disease and breast cancer, each by 25-50%. Exercise also helps with secondary prevention (reducing complications when you have a condition, including recurrence of cancer and mental health). Most of the UK population do so little exercise they are becoming ill.
