Intensive Physical Activity Associated with Higher Risk of ALS
A new research, conducted by the team of neurologists from the Netherlands, finds that intensive physical activity may lead to amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease.
To assess the connection between physical activity and ALS, a team of scientists investigated the lifestyles of more than 1,500 adults with the diagnosis of ALS in Ireland, Italy, and The Netherlands. These data contained information on their lifetime physical activity levels, their gender, educational attainment, employment history, and smoking and alcohol intake.
According to the received data, the average heightened risk for physical activity in leisure time was 7%, and 6% for occupational physical activity.
The team says the overall risk can be as high as a 26% increase in risk when comparing a person who is more active than average with one who is significantly less active than average.
