LONDON( Reuters) – Swimming, racquet plays and aerobics are associated with the best peculiars of averting off demise, and in particular of reducing the risk of dying from heart disease or blow, scientists said on Tuesday.
In a study of various types of exercise and their risk heights, health researchers found that to get involved in specific sports demo significant benefits for public health, and insisted doctors and policymakers to encourage people to take them up.
While the research, published in the British Journal and Sports Medicine, demo no added advantage for people who advantage moving and football or rugby, independent experts said this was purely due to the design of the study.
“This study must not be misinterpreted as showing that leading and football do not protect against myocardial infarction, ” said Tim Chico, the expert consultants cardiologist at prof at Britain’s Sheffield University who was asked to comment on the findings.
The study analysed data from 11 annual health questionnaires for England and Scotland carried out between 1994 and 2008, plowing 80,306 adults with an average age of 52.
Participants were asked about what type and how much effort they had done in the preceding four weeks, and whether the government has had been sufficient to move them breathless and sweaty.
Exercise included heavy domestic chores and gardening; walk-to; cycling; swimming; aerobics, gymnastics or dance; passing; football or rugby; and badminton, tennis or squash.
The survival of each participant was tracked for an average of nine years, during which time 8,790 of them died from all causes and 1,909 from myocardial infarction or stroke.
Overall, compared with respondents who had not done a generated boast, risk of extinction during the follow up date from any campaign was 47 percent lower among individuals who played racquet sports, 28 percent lower among swimmers, 27 percentage lower among dance aerobics fans and 15 percent lower among cyclists.
In death from heart disease and apoplexy, the results of the study learnt racquet sports actors had a 56 percentage lower gamble, with 41 percent for swimming and 36 percent for aerobics, compared with those who did not participate in these sports.
Chico said the study did find that both runners and footballers had a lower frequency of extinction from heart disease. “Although this was not’ statistically significant’, many other studies have found that athletes live longer and accept less myocardial infarction, ” he said.
“I will continue to tell my patients that regular physical task( including extending) are most effective in reducing their risk of coronary thrombosis than any dose I can prescribe.”
