Not Exercising Is Worse for Your Health Than Smoking, Says Study

Not Exercising Is Worse for Your Health Than Smoking, Says Study

Jaber said researchers must now convey the risks to the general population that "being unfit should be considered as strong of a risk factor as hypertension, diabetes and smoking - if not stronger than all of them". To find the association between all-cause mortality and cardiorespiratory health in patients undergoing treadmill testing, researchers studied 122,007 patients between January 1, 1991 up to December 31, 2014, and divided them into five performance groups or levels of fitness.

Participants were broken up into five performance groups - elite, high, above average, below average and low. The results were published in the JAMA Network Open medical journal on Friday. That's what a new study has done.

Dyson to build electric vehicle plant in Singapore
Dyson plans to utilise what it's learned making vacuum cleaners with "switched reluctance" electric motors and apply that to cars. Once the plant is completed, Rowan added that Dyson's first electric auto will roll off the production line in 2021.


With the results of the new study, the researchers note the importance of fitness when it comes to long-term mortality, and even encourage patients to also ask for an exercise prescription from their doctors.

The findings, he said, were by far the most "pronounced" and "objective" ever seen and were 'extremely surprising'.

Cowboys Long Snapper, Kicker Let Alex Smith Off the Hook
Quarterback Dak Prescott and running back Ezekiel Elliott have played significantly better at home this season, too. Still, the foes lined up on the Cowboys' remaining schedule began this week at 25-31, a.446 winning percentage.


The benefits of exercise were seen across all ages and in both men and women. "Whether you're in your 40s or your 80s, you will benefit in the same way". But in recent years, there's actually been evidence that elite athletes and other heavy exercisers might paradoxically be at greater risk of some heart conditions than the average person, such as an irregular heartbeat, clogged arteries, and thickened heart valves. "We all know that a sedentary lifestyle or being unfit has some risk". In addition, he states that researchers, in the past, have expressed consistent concern about "ultra exercises" but this study assures there is no need for it. Compared to those in the top percentile those with sedentary lifestyles were associated with 500% increased risk for death.

The study showed that the ultra-fit still have lower mortality compared to those who don't exercise at all. In fact, a past study has even shown that simply replacing 30 minutes of sedentary time with 30 minutes of housework can benefit health, while another revealed that replacing 6 hours of sitting with 6 hours of standing can even help with weight loss.

EU Hands Italy Unprecedented Budget Rebuke on Rules Breach
That's why we won't disappoint you. "And excessive debt makes your economy more vulnerable to future crisis", Dombrovskis said. Luigi Di Maio, one of Italy's two deputy prime ministers, responded to the rejection by calling for "respect" for Italians.


Cardiorespiratory fitness is the ability of the circulatory and respiratory systems to supply oxygen to skeletal muscles during sustained physical activity. "We're meant to walk, run, exercise". Although people have their own choices when it comes to their exercise routines, what's important is that they get their body moving.
