Exercise Better than Drugs for Preventing Heart Disease? February 29, 2008

Filed under: Health — Ryann Hayman @ 11:00 am

Exercise appears to be an important factor for preventing heart disease. This does not mean training for a marathon. It simply means light exercise for moderate periods of 30-60 minutes. Proper exercise keeps the blood flowing smoothly through the arteries, thereby preventing blockage. This is known scientifically as improving endothelial dysfunction. Second, exercise lowers homocysteine levels. Homocysteine in the blood is a risk for heart disease due to its ability to scars arterial walls and elicit plaque build-up. Finally, exercise lowers blood glucose levels. High blood glucose has shown to increase the risk of heart disease exponentially. This is why diabetics have a 4.5 times greater chance of suffering from heart disease relative to non-diabetics – high blood glucose. These benefits of exercise are proof that habits create and eradicate disease, not drugs. Recognizing this, drug companies and medical doctors will have to take huge pay cuts. Personal trainers and fitness instructors are the true custodians of public health – as dictated by science, not hype.
