SATURDAY, JUNE 9 MORNING
HEALTH BENEFITS OF EXERCISE
William L. Haskell, Ph.D.
The current evidence linking vigorous physical activity and major health benefits will be critically reviewed. The physiological basis of how exercise may promote health will also be discussed with regard to cardiovascular and non-cardiovascular disease.
EXERCISE AND THE CHOLESTEROL STORY
Peter D. Wood, D.Sc.
The very active individual has an apparently advantageous plasma lipoprotein pattern in which the high-density lipoprotein level (HDL) is high. The degree of physical activity required to produce this pattern will be discussed and the influence of adiposity, diet and alcohol intake explored.
EXERCISE AND PREVENTING HEART DISEASE
Ralph S. Paffenbarger, M.D., Dr. P.H.
What do San Franciscan longshoremen and Harvard alumni have in common?
