Vitamin C ‘As Effective As Exercise’ At Improving Vascular Tone

Vitamin C may mimic some of the effects of exercise in overweight and obese individuals. [1] The protein endothelin-1 (ET-1) has a constricting action on small blood vessels.

Increasing sedentarism and obesity in Western nations threaten to collapse welfare states

Seems a strange way to approach the topic of obesity. But this is based on an article by the UK online newspaper The Telegraph, and there is more of a welfare state concern there than here in the USA.
