ABSTRACT
Discusses fallacies surrounding fitness and good health. Lack of evidence proving that someone who runs five miles a day will live longer than someone who doesn't; Details of a long-term epidemiological study of nearly 17,000 Harvard graduates; Fact that carefully prescribed exercises may increase the chances of survival in some people but the physical fitness that daily rigorous exercise is supposed to produce does little to prevent heart disease in otherwise healthy people.
