Not exercising worse for your health than smoking

Not exercising worse for your health than smoking

But a new study published Friday in JAMA Network Open suggests that exercise is a clear exception. Those who got minimal exercise also had a 390 percent raised risk of death, they noted compared to those who regularly exercised. Sure, exercise contributes to better health, but not all workouts are the same, and different bodies benefit from different types of exercise. 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.

So for their research, they made a decision to analyze long-term data from their own medical center, the Cleveland Clinic. 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. "This is not the patients telling us what they do", Jaber said.

"Aerobic fitness is something that most patients can control".

Breaking down the results, researchers found that people with sedentary lifestyles had 500 per cent higher risk associated with death than those categorized as being top exercise performers.

Oil steadies as Saudi Arabia plans output increase
Benchmark Brent crude oil futures were at $80.26 a barrel at 0646 GMT, up 48 cents, or 0.6 percent, above their last close. While Saudi Arabia is intent on making up for lost barrels, the outlook for demand next year is deteriorating.

"We can see from the study that the ultra-fit still have lower mortality". And the effects of elite exercise were especially profound in older people and those with high blood pressure. The risk of dying was twice as much among those who fared poorly on the treadmill compared to those who had kidney failure on dialysis.

There is no argument that exercise is good for you, but exactly what benefits-and how much benefit-you receive are somewhat up for debate.

Jaber noted that while the dangers of leading a sedentary lifestyle and being out of shape are well-known, he admitted that he was surprised by the study's findings which indicate that both states 'overwhelm even the risk factors as strong as smoking, diabetes or even end-stage disease'. Cleveland Clinic's health system includes a 165-acre main campus near downtown Cleveland, 11 regional hospitals, more than 150 northern OH outpatient locations - including 18 full-service family health centers and three health and wellness centers - and locations in Weston, Fla.; Las Vegas, Nev.; Toronto, Canada; Abu Dhabi, UAE; and London, England.
