Please kindly see other articles I’ve written along these lines which speak directly to your points. If I tried to get every single relevant point into one article it would be War and Peace for fitness. I happen to agree with you, Chuck, so before you condemn me outright kindly see the other pieces I’ve written which acknowledge many of these very things. For example and for starters. I have to pick a single theme to keep them short.

I also reference the Mayo Clinic, among others. Not an argument. Like I said, we agree. Before you leap to conclusions, there’s a lot more we agree on than not. Thanks for your thoughtful comments, always very useful.
