Supposedly kidney stones are the most painful thing you can possible endure. Women who have given birth without medication that have had stones have even said they would gladly give birth another 50 times before going through one more kidney stone

Exercise will help prevent or mitigate just about anything non-genetically pre-disposed (which includes aging related conditions). Use it or lose it is really a thing. If we wanted to make a list of all the maladies that exercise helps with, you may as well just start with a list of everything that has ever been recorded as afflicting humans and cross out maybe a few.

Unfortunately, when it comes to healthcare, most Americans are entirely focused on demanding that other people do things for them, instead of what they could be doing for themselves.

Meh. I've been turning the lights on and off for years but I wouldn't really call it exercise.
