SPORT is a natural way to maintain health and prevent disease. Research shows, active every day can keep you from risks such as heart disease and cancer.
Similarly, eat, exercise should be done every day. Do not immediately think of strenuous exercise on the sweating, light activity such as walking or cycling around the compound, is an enjoyable exercise alternative.
Sports medicine specialist, Dr. Phaidon L Toruan MM, express, sport is a must. “Just as you pray and pray in accordance with the religion and belief to spiritual needs, then the sport is a physical need,” he said.
Phaidon add, sport or in everyday language as training is an activity that uses physical force. Today, with increasing degenerative diseases such as heart attacks, hypertension, diabetes, cholesterol, in the end many people know that one reason is the lack of sporting activity.
Departing from this, the sport can be considered as “medicine”, which then also inspire terlahirnya sports therapy (sports therapy). Better to prevent than cure. Well, other than healthy, regular exercise has been proven to prevent the emergence of diseases, especially obesity as a gateway various chronic diseases like diabetes and cardiovascular related diseases (cardiovascular). Therefore, the problems often experienced in people with excess body weight is the high metabolism.
“Metabolism is affected body mass. The greater body mass, the more energy it takes to burn calories. This condition would be dangerous if you rarely exercise,” said the professor of the Pennington Biomedical Research Center in Baton Rouge, Los Angeles, Timothy Church, MD, MPH, PhD.
Various international scale studies have been handed the findings of the benefits of exercise for health and disease prevention. A recent study conducted by researchers in the United States also revealed that regular exercise can protect men from prostate cancer.
Conclusions are based on the results of their tests against the 190 male participants who had a biopsy of the prostate. That the participants are quite active, even just walking for a few hours per week, it had significantly less tendency to get prostate cancer.
The majority of men in this study (approximately 58 percent) in their daily life is much less movement and more sedentary (sedentary). In other words, if they could perform activities of walking, they are at most only do it in less than 1 hour per week. The study also reported that the exercise (exercise) who do men who have prostate cancer can minimize cancer progression toward a more malignant.
“The rising portion of sport you play, diminishing the risk of cancer,” says urologist at Duke University Medical Center in America, Dr. Jodi Antonelli, who headed the study of writing.
Responding to the results of a study published online in the Journal of Urology 22 issue of the September, a urologist at Duke and the Durham Veterans Affairs Hospital, Dr. Stephen Freedland, revealed that these findings are certainly useful as a reference for medical scientists who are still looking for evidence related benefits of exercise for cancer prevention.
“There are dozens of studies that reported benefits of exercise in reducing the risk of prostate cancer, some of which even a large-scale studies. However, it is still confusing and leaves a question mark,” he said.
In addition to prostate cancer the most feared men found, women can also benefit from the exercise, namely to keep the risk of breast cancer.
This was revealed in a study by a team of researchers from the University of Southern Californiadi Los Angeles. They found that the motion of high-intensity exercise such as swimming, aerobics, and running can reduce the risk of breast cancer.
According to the researchers, exercise or sports may reduce cancer risk through changes in metabolism and the immune system by reducing weight gain.
For the purposes of this study, the research team involving 110 599 participants in the California woman who traced his health history since 1995. Compared to participants who only exercised less than 30 minutes a week, female participants who diligently perform high motion activity for more than 5 hours a week are known to experience a reduced risk of invasive breast cancer by 20 percent, and 31 percent of cancers for early-stage breast cancer.
The study was conducted primarily to see the cumulative effects of sports or exercise a higher risk of breast cancer. Before the diagnosis of breast cancer, on average, participants claimed only do a little exercise.
“The results of this study along with additional evidence on cancer prevention through physical activity is heavy, but fun in a long-term risk of invasive breast cancer and those who are still early stage,” said researcher as noted in the journal Archives of Internal Medicine.
