Even Extreme Levels of Aerobic Exercise Increase Your Lifespan
A large-scale study by scientists from the Cleveland Clinic in Ohio finds that even large amounts of aerobic exercise still increase the lifespan, especially in older people.
For the study, a team of researchers led by Dr. Wael Jaber who is a cardiologist at the Cleveland Clinic has analyzed the data from 122,007 people who participated in exercise treadmill testing from January 1, 1991, to December 31, 2014. The scientists paid the special attention to the link between aerobic exercises and lifespan.
Having analyzed the received data, the researchers concluded that higher levels of aerobic fitness were associated directly with the lower risk of long-term mortality.
Dr. Wael Jaber explains: “Aerobic fitness is something that most patients can control. And we found in our study there is no limit to how much exercise is too much […] Everyone should be encouraged to achieve and maintain high fitness levels.”
