This week: exercise benefits, food as medicine and the origins of cancer

Even though the benefits of exercise are well documented, many people aren't getting enough of it, explains Karen Kemmis, a doctor of physical therapy, registered nurse and certified diabetes educator at Upstate. She talks about the research that shows how physical activity helps reduce the risk of diabetes, heart disease and obesity.

Also this week, medical student Natalie Antosh tells about a new "Food as Medicine" course. And, professor Mina Bissell discusses the origins of cancer. Tune in this Sunday, January 5 at 6 a.m. and 9 p.m. for "HealthLink on Air."
