Everyone wants to be healthy and there are diverse opinions on how to stay healthy. While some people think the cardinal factor behind this is exercise, others feel that a balanced diet is more significant. Both views are topical in nature, and hence a logical conclusion can be framed only after a thorough discussion.
On the one hand, the former group focuses on the difficulties a person might experience in his life if he abstains from exercise. To be clearer, exercise is obviously beneficial for the mind and body, and it is scientifically proven that sedentary life is detrimental for a person’s health. For example, there are a number of people who suffer from life-style diseases like obesity and hypertension irrespective of age and gender just because they hesitate to do exercise. However, in the case of a person who does regular exercise, the situation is different, as he is found to be in a sound state of health.
On the other hand, the opposite group opines that having a balanced diet is even more significant. The prime reason why they think is because of the poor quality food that people consume these days. In many markets or shopping malls, organic food products and food which are free from adulteration or chemicals are hardly found. Many researches have proven that a diet which is balanced in vitamins and minerals, which is free from any adulteration is essential to keep people healthy. While accepting that exercise is crucial in maintaining good health, they feel it alone cannot ensure good health.
After analysing both these views in detail, I think both these factors cannot stand independently in health maintenance. At the same time I should accept the fact that a balanced diet is more important in this case.
