ABSTRACT
The article reports that public health campaigns regularly plug exercise as a sure-fire way to avoid an early grave. But that message may be too simplistic. For an unhappy few, even quite strenuous exercise may have no effect on their fitness or their risk of developing diseases like diabetes. At the Australian Health and Medical Research Congress in Sydney last week the results of a study were reported assessing the role of genes in fitness and health changes in response to exercise.
