Exercise is important for the body. It keeps muscles and bones strong and helps protect you from being overweight, but some are having trouble going to the club because of concerns. Is there a solution?
A YouTube video offers a simple 15-minute exercise program that can be done at home, stimulates metabolism and helps burn calories.
Before doing this exercise you should warm up and consult your doctor, especially if you have health problems.
This way you can exercise at home, without worrying about having to leave the house to the club.
Two days ago, a recent study found that current or former smokers can ward off the risk of lung cancer death or death if they exercise.
The researchers underwent 2,979 men tested on an electric jogging device - 1,602 former smokers and 1,367 smokers today - to assess their "cardiovascular fitness" or to what extent the circulatory and respiratory systems can supply muscle with oxygen during physical exertion. They used a measure known as metabolic equivalents, which reflects the amount of oxygen consumed during physical activity.
The researchers followed the men for about 11.6 years, during which time 99 were diagnosed with lung cancer, 79 of whom died of the disease.
The study, published in the American Journal of Preventive Medicine, said that improving cardiovascular fitness could reduce the incidence of about 11% in former smokers and prevent about 22% of deaths from the disease in current smokers.
Exercise helps control weight, hides excess weight, a major health problem, and even reaches the airways.
Obesity builds up fatty tissue in the airways, contributing to asthma and other respiratory diseases, according to a recent Australian study.
The study was conducted by researchers at Sir Charles Gadner Hospital in Australia and published in the European Respiratory Journal.
The researchers pointed out that obesity has become one of the most important health problems around the world, linked to many diseases, mainly diabetes and digestive diseases and kidneys, but it is not clear the mechanisms that contribute to some of these problems.
The relationship between obesity and asthma is one of the mysterious mechanisms that need to be explained.
The researchers analyzed post-mortem lung samples collected from 52 people who donated the research, including 15 who did not have asthma, 21 who had asthma but died from non-disease-related causes, while 16 died from asthma-related diseases.
The researchers used special dyes to study the structure of the lungs and determine the amount of fat tissue in them, and studied data on the body mass index for each donor.
The team found that adipose tissue build up in the airway walls of obese people, and also found that the higher the body mass index (BMI), the greater the amount of fat in the airways.
In addition, they found that fat accumulation affects the normal structure of the airways in the lung and causes inflammation of the lungs, which in turn contributes to asthma and other respiratory problems.
