Inactivity,Health and Aging
Proceeding of the 4th Symposium on Inactivity
"Not only lying in bed but also inactivity is bad for health." The inactive life style is a danger to health. The meaning of this fact increases its importance along with graying of the population. Some physiological features of aging are attributable to inactivity and the mechanism would be explored by the bed rest study on young volunteers. This book is edited from the proceedings of participants to the 4th symposium on Inactivity. Many findings draw much on our former series of studies in 1997 and 1998 that were already published elsewhere. It is a great pleasure that this volume could have added much to the former attainments.
