In a very interesting article published on October 20th in Time Magazine,Gina Martinex argues very persuasively that, "skipping out on the gym is practically the worst thing you can do for your health."
"In fact, the study claims not exercising might be more harmful to your health than smoking."
"New findings, published Friday in the journal JAMA Network Open, detail how researchers at the Cleveland Clinic studied 122,007 patients from 1991 to 2014, putting them under treadmill testing and later recording mortality rates. Researchers found a clear connection between a longer, healthier life and high levels of exercise. The report calls for health care professionals to encourage patients to achieve and maintain a robust fitness routine."
“'Cardiorespiratory fitness is inversely associated with long-term mortality with no observed upper limit of benefit,' the study says. 'Extremely high aerobic fitness was associated with the greatest survival and was associated with benefit in older patients and those with hypertension.'”
