Being overweight doesn't matter ? - part 2

Continuing on from my previous post regarding a recent report that tells us that being overweight doesn't matter. Well I'm not convinced and believe its worth bothering to exercise and get healthy and there is evidence to support this.
 
Take regular exercise

The Director of Research and Development at the Alzheimer’s Society says that the 4 key evidence based strategies for preventing dementia are;

         Exercise
         Not smoking

         Healthy diet
 
         Looking after your heart
 
Of these, the most important is exercise (30 mins moderate exercise five times a week)

Look after your heart

Not smoking helps and managing your blood pressure, diabetes risk and cholesterol levels.  Some studies are suggesting that the sooner these measures are put in place the better the outcome, especially in higher risk groups.
