Here's proof that exercise changes everything
The Huffington Post
While most of us are probably aware of the powerful benefits of regular exercise, we're clearly not all convinced: Just about 20 percent of American adults over the age of 18 meet the government's recommended guidelines when it comes to physical activity, according to a CDC report. The average adult needs at least two hours and 30 minutes of activity each week, if it's at a moderate intensity level, like brisk walking.

The extra benefits of exercise
CNN
Ron Cothran writes: There I was, having an epiphany. I had just run close to 3 miles with my 24-year-old son, and wishing I had been in better shape to enjoy more activities with my kids when they were younger. Why did I wait so long to get healthier?

As more people are dropping foods based on genetically modified organisms from their diets, sales figures for products marked with eco-friendly labels like "organic" and "natural" are rising. The organic food industry is slated to reach $50 billion by 2018 in North America, and brands like Whole Foods, Kroger and Sprouts are in fierce competition to tap the increasing potential of the organic food market.
