Any amount of physical activity can lower your risk of developing type 2 diabetes

Any amount of physical activity can lower your risk of developing type 2 diabetes, but the more you exercise, the better your chances.

More committed exercisers who do an hour-long moderate to vigorous work-out every day may diminish their risk of contracting the disease by a massive 40%.
