10 subject will be used per group.
We intend for our patients to be 50% physically active and 50% physically inactive.





Subject Selection

Our team will be posting information for the experiment in various local doctors offices in Sun City, AZ and surrounding areas.

Subjects must meet requirements:
-No major or extreme cases of inflammatory diseases. I.E. arthritis, asthma, etc.
-Must have minimal to moderate inflammatory symptoms.



Sources of Error and Bias

-Error with group segregation.
-We may find various definitions when we define the term "active" when dividing the study groups.
-Patient missing medication timeline.
