Survey: Americans unaware of exercise recommendations
A survey found only one-third of participants were aware of national recommendations to get a minimum of 30 minutes of exercise daily, and fewer than 50% of people met that goal. Researchers said 14 years of public campaigns on the recommendations may be having a limited impact due to the "highly generalized, saturating effect of media in the current environment."
