Physical Activity May Restrain Harmful Effects of Alcohol Consumption
Meeting the recommended amount of physical activity may offset some of the cancer and all-cause mortality risk connected to alcohol consumption, a study published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine suggests.
In their survey, the team of researchers included data from the responses to nationally representative health surveys in England and Scotland, where each was linked to cause-specific mortality, for the years 1994, 1998, 1999, 2003, 2004, and 2006.
Having analyzed the given data, scientists concluded that the risk of death had increased or decreased depending on the level of physical activity.
People were more likely to die from cancer and alcohol intake rose from within the recommended limits up to harmful levels and they didn’t meet the minimum recommended levels of 7.5 MET/hour (Metabolic Equivalent of Task).
