Then he can be able to go to the gym again.

Gyms are typically not where you find Obese people, which itself is a leading cause of hypertension. And type II diabetes generally results from bad life choices that lead to obesity.

America is typically where you find Obese people.
Especially in the South. And especially, at risk of repeating myself, in the poor parts of America.

Tell you what.
You can come over and use the stationary bike, rope, and hand weights in the backyard, okay?
The back steps work well enough for doing dips.
I think there's even some kettlebells back there someplace.

You were whining about how you couldn't go to the gym and had to work out at home now. All because old people didn't want to line up for ovens. As it turns out, it's not just the elderly, but segments of all age groups, particularly those who are already ill.

Perhaps you have been been watching too many 1930's German propaganda movies since you've been there.

Anyone who is even somewhat serious about the gym doesn't need "the gym."

He probably hasn't seen his feet in 6 or 8 years.

Add to this, the last round of testing has shown that more than ten times the number suspected of having to been infected with the virus were carrying antibodies for that virus, CV19. This means two things, ten times the number believed to have had it have already been infected and recovered without even noticing. Secondly this shut down accomplished nothing. Solution, protect the vulnerable and get the country open for business. Poverity is unhealthy too.

Those studies were obliterated by other scientists and statisticians. That's probably why they were released to the press before they were peer reviewed.

In other words, your argument is based on bad info.

Try again.
