Without some form of exercise you can eat all the healthy B.S.organic foods you want and you won't be truly "Physically Fit"

Originally Answered: What are the pros and cons of low body fat percentage?
At 6% body fat, it is considered pretty low, but still healthy. As long as you don't drop below 6% for long periods of time, you will have benefits such as less risk of heart disease and diabetes, as well as lower cholesterol and blood pressure, reduced chance of stroke and some cancers. It also can have beneficial psychological effects, such as higher self esteem and increased confidence.

Proper nutrition is very important but only one piece of the puzzle. Our bodies have 639 muscles for one very important reason: we are designed to move and be active! You can eat as nutritionally as possible, but if you starve your body of physical exercise the benefits of food are limited.
Physical exercise has many benefits. Aerobic work, like treadmill, bike or brisk walking/jogging, strengthens the heart, lowers blood pressure, metabolizes bodyfat, increases metabolism and improves the efficiency of your cardiovascular system.
Weight training keeps muscles, ligaments and tendons strong, improves bone density, maintains your metabolism and fat-burning efficiency at optimal levels and keeps you lean and tight.
Food provides the fuel, that's it. Food does not make you fit, does not stimulate muscle growth or bone density, and does not strengthen your heart. You MUST combine both proper nutrtion AND regular physical exercise to be truly heathy.
I've seen people on both sides of the issue. Some people eat reasonably well but do not exercise at all; others workout all the time but have poor nutrition. You know what? Neither group is genuinely healthy. The most fit people are the ones that combine proper nutrition with regular exercise.

No, you must have some form of exercise, fast walking for an hour a day, anything like that now after you get on in life, if you have exercised and eaten right, then it does not seem to matte, they interviewed people over 100, some were still working, they all looked like not more than 70, they ate what I call garbage food, one man was 106 and smoking, he was asked when he started, he said when he was 80!!! Bu the one thing they all had in common and the conclusion to the long life, was a little exercise and the ability to let go, because they had all out lived their friends and most of their families, but they did not dwell on it they all moved on!

It is a dumb question asked about health but intentionally excluding any type of exercise. N-E-X-T

Originally Answered: What are the pros and cons of alternative energy?
U need to do your own research.
The pros depend on the source of the alternative energy. For example, electric cars - is riding or driving an electric car good for human health since we are electrical conductors with bodies that have so much water and neurotransmitters in them? Is electricity really a good alternative source for running vehicles?
Pick a few sources or types of alternative energy and investigate it - use the library and the internet to discover for yourself whether they are valid and good sources or not.
