This is why all should exercise .......

Regular high-intensity exercise can slow the ageing of the body's cells by nearly 10 years, according to a US study.

Research from Brigham Young University (BMU), published in medical journal Preventive Medicine, found people who consistently did high levels of activity had significantly longer telomeres - a protein that protects chromosomes from deterioration - than those who were sedentary and even of those who were moderately active.

The older a person gets, the shorter telomeres become.

But exercise science professor Larry Tucker says a person's chronological age does not always reflect their biological age.

"We all know people that seem younger than their actual age. The more physically active we are, the less biological ageing takes place in our bodies," he said.

Researchers at BMU, led by Professor Tucker, analysed data from nearly 6000 adults who took part in the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey.

The survey included telomere length values for study subjects.

The analysis showed the shortest telomeres belonged to those who led a sedentary lifestyle.

There was also no significant difference in telomere length between those with low or moderate physical activity and the sedentary people.

Adults who did at least 30 minutes of jogging a day, five days a week, had the longest telomeres, giving them a biological ageing advantage of nine years, the research estimated.

"If you want to see a real difference in slowing your biological ageing, it appears that a little exercise won't cut it," Prof Tucker said.

Although the exact mechanism for how exercise preserves telomeres is unknown, it is thought it might be tied to inflammation and oxidative stress - the body's inability to counteract the production of damaging free radical molecules.

The New Reasons To Exercise (series)


To better understand the role of fitness in cancer prevention, researchers at the National Cancer Institute analysed data from 1.4 million people who reported their physical-activity levels over a period of 11 years.  People who were more active had a 20% lower risk of certain serious cancers, including cancer of the esophagus, lung, kidney, stomach and endometrium, according to a study published in May.  This builds on earlier research showing that exercise can significantly reduce the risk of colorectal and other cancers.

Exercise after work, and eat less!

The New Reasons To Exercise (series)


Exercise may be the key to keeping your appetite in check.   A study published in April found that people who exercised for 15 minutes after doing mental work – like work we all do at the office each day – ate 100 fewer calories than people who did mental work and then remained sedentary.  “Exercise has the ability to increase available fuel sources in the body that may signal to the brain, ‘Here is the energy source I need.  I don’t need to replenish it through food,’ says study author William H. Neumeier of the University of Alabama at Birmingham.
