The Remarkable Life of Hans Kraus

In the mountains, Hans Kraus was known for heart stopping adventures. In medicine, he forged an equally bold path.

In the 1950’s, Dr. Hans Kraus made headline news for discovering the link among muscles, fitness, back pain, and disease —  including cancer. And he became the first to sound the alarm that unless American children exercised more, the impact on the U.S. would be dire and long lasting.

His medical path led to three White Houses. It was there he learned that danger lay where he expected it least.
