Exercise is Dangerous


I am gemused to learn that the Copenhagen City Heart Study, conducted on runners, concluded that too much exercise really can kill you.

The study of 1,098 runners found that those who ran the fastest were nine times more likely to die prematurely within 12 years than those who enjoyed a more sedate pace of around 5mph for two or three times a week.

In fact, strenuous runners were as likely to die as those who did no physical activity.

Peter Schnohr, MD, DMSc, is quoted by the Telegraph:
"There may be an upper limit for exercise dosing that is optimal for health benefits.
It is important to emphasize that the pace of jogging corresponds to very vigorous exercise.

When performed for decades, this activity level could pose health risks, especially to the cardiovascular system.

If your goal is to decrease risk of death and improve life expectancy, jogging a few times a week at a moderate pace is a good strategy. Anything more is not just unnecessary, it may be harmful."
As ever, it is a case of eating, drinking and exercising in balance rather than to extremes.
