Exercise can help reduce health risks and maintain good long-term health. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the benefits of exercise to health far outweigh the risks of injury from exercise. Exercise has been scientifically proven to reduce the risk of premature death from heart disease and cancer, regardless of age, race, body type, or physique.
Studies have shown that regular exercise can reduce the risk of various illnesses and health conditions, and can improve overall quality of life (QOL). The long-term health benefits of exercise include:
1. Reduce the risk of premature death
2. Reduce the risk of death from heart disease
3. Reduce the risk of developing diabetes
4. Reduce the risk of developing hypertension
5. The effect of lowering blood pressure in hypertensive patients
6. Reducing the risk of developing colorectal cancer
7. Reduction of depression and anxiety
8. Weight management
9. Build and maintain healthy bones, muscles and joints
10. The effect of strengthening the elderly body and reducing the risk of falling
11. Promote mental health
People who exercise for 7 hours a week have a 40% lower risk of premature death than those who do less than 30 minutes a week. Moderate aerobic exercise for at least 150 minutes per week can reduce the risk of premature death. This risk includes coronary heart disease, the leading cause of death in many countries.
However, the risk of premature mortality does not necessarily decrease when the amount of exercise is extremely high or when intense exercise is performed. The state can be improved. Increasing exercise (duration, frequency, intensity) also improves health, but even more active movement improves health.
