Booze Offset By 150 Minutes of Weekly Exercise
According to a study published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine modest exercise of 150 minutes per week can offset the harmful effects of booze.
The researchers, from the University of Sydney, analysed data from nationally representative health surveys carried out in England and Scotland between 1994 and 2006.
They found that, after taking into account external factors, there is a direct association between drinking larger amounts of alcohol and death from all causes and from cancer.
The researchers found that the risk was reduced/eliminated among those who are physically active, which they define as requiring at least 150 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity every week.
Fair enough, as it rather knocks on the head Nanny's doom laden lectures telling us not to drink.
However, is it not possible that those who are active are generally healthier than others, and that it is that general level of good health that motivates/energises them to be active (ie energy and activity are by products of good health).
As such is it not the old story that some people will die younger than others, no matter what, and that "one size fits all" recommendations for booze/exercise do not work?
