Jean Kerr, an Irish-American author once said, “I’m tired of all this nonsense about beauty being skin deep. That’s deep enough. What do you want, adorable pancreas?” I beg to disagree with 

this statement of Kerr and prefer to look ‘deeper.’ I would much rather have adorable pancreas and an adorable kidney and liver than adorable skin! And the key to adorable kidneys is fitness and exercise.

I could write a book on the various excuses people give to avoid exercise and the title of that book would be ‘I don’t have the time.’ Since we all have the same 24 hours in a day, I cannot buy this excuse and nor could British Statesman, Edward Stanley who said, “Those who cannot find time for exercise will sooner or later have to find time for illness.”
