Fit 50-Year Olds Less Likely To Get Chronic Disease.

Frederick Joelving writing in Reuters reported that a new study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine found that fit 50-year-olds are less likely to be afflicted with chronic disease as they get older than those who are sedentary.  Dr. Jarett Berry at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center led the study. Berry explained the findings of the research, “We see truly reduced chronic disease, rather than just delaying the inevitable.” He added that the study also makes the case for more vigorous exercise. Berry states, “We know from prior literature that higher-intensity exercise tends to
translate into more fitness.”

More People Walking

Nanci Hellmich writing in USA Today reported “More people in this country say they’re walking regularly, a new government survey shows.” However, “less than half of people say they are meeting the
federal government’s physical activity guidelines.” Thomas Frieden, MD, MPH, director of the CDC, said “The basic news today is that physical activity is the wonder drug, and more Americans are making a great first step in getting more physical activity.” Joan Dorn, chief of CDC’s Physical Activity and Health Branch says, “We hypothesize that new walkers appear to be starting with short bouts of walking, so overall the average time people spent walking has gone down slightly.

Exercise Important For Arthritis Patients.

Kim Harnett reporting for the Record and Herald News Of New Jersey reported, “while arthritis sufferers may avoid exercise due to fear of pain or injury, by not exercising regularly, they may be contributing to further future debilitation.  “People with arthritis who exercise have less pain, more energy, improved sleep, and better day-to-day function,” according to the American College of Rheumatology.  “Another important discovery is fat has been discovered to be an endocrine organ – fat cells produce substances that contribute to inflammation in the body, a contributing factor to arthritis.”

Statins Hurt Ability To Exercise

Gretchen Reynolds writing in the New York Times reported “For years, physicians and scientists have been aware that statins, the most widely prescribed drugs in the world, can cause muscle aches and fatigue in some patients,” but “many people don’t know…that these side effects are especially pronounced in people who exercise.”  Reynolds points to one study in rats that found that “overall, the study data showed that working out while taking statins “exacerbated metabolic perturbations’ in muscles.”
