Sedentary Lifestyle Worse Than Many Diseases for Long-Term Health

Sedentary Lifestyle Worse Than Many Diseases for Long-Term Health

"But what isn't so obvious is that a sedentary lifestyle is actually worse than all three, according to a new study led by the Cleveland Clinic's Dr. Wael Jaber". Researchers analyzed mortality rates among volunteers, their history of disease and overall physical condition. Indicator of increased risk of 500%.

More than $200 billion is spent per year within the US on CVD and diabetes; rather than paying huge amounts of money for disease treatment patients and communities should be heavily encouraged to be active and exercise daily explains Dr. Jordan Metzl; adding a big revelation from research is that fitness leads to longer and healthier lives, with no known limits to the benefits of aerobic exercise, as a study has shown that ultra exercisers are not at risks. In fact, it was found to be just as significant, if not more so, compared to other risk factors such as smoking, diabetes, and heart disease.

The benefits of exercise were seen across all ages and in both men and women, "probably a little more pronounced in females", Jaber said. Indeed, he comments, "There is no level of exercise or fitness that exposes you to risk". Jaber noted that the participants that did not perform well on the treadmill test have double the risk of mortality than patients on dialysis because of kidney failure. It (being unfit) should be treated nearly as a disease which has a medicine called exercise.

A spokesperson for Van Nuys Airport later said the plane was an AT-6 aircraft from its Condor Squadron vintage flying club. There was no damage to any vehicles, but the crash intensified traffic about 30 miles west of downtown Los Angeles.

What made the study so unique, beyond the sheer number of people studied, he said was that researchers weren't relying on patients self-reporting their exercise. "This is us testing them and figuring out objectively the real measure of what they do". Sure, exercise contributes to better health, but not all workouts are the same, and different bodies benefit from different types of exercise. Elite performers were defined as having aerobic fitness in the top two and half percent by age and gender, and demonstrated fitness levels comparable to endurance athletes.

Those that exercised minimally still had a 390 per cent higher risk associated with death compared to those that regularly exercised. The researchers looked at the possibility of diehard gym rats and marathoners being at risk from pushing themselves too hard, but found that there's no link between an abundance of exercise and an early grave. "It's reversible", he explained, adding that doctors are really good at treating patients who have had cardiovascular events but they can be prevented. "It's all about getting up and moving".
