Doctors get paid for disease treatment, not for keeping you healthy.
If people stayed healthy until age 133 then the economy would collapse
– the medical industry, drug industry, would evaporate and take out banks, universities, and much of world trade.
Getting rid of cars, trucks, electronics, guns, drugs, gangs, cops, wars, imperialism, and other death industries may kill the economy but be good for the sheeple.
I would not verbally seek advice from any doctor on research unless they did the research.
First go to the library to read what they have written and compare that with other researchers.
There is probably not much good epidemiology work on exercise, a bunch of scattered articles overwhelmed by drugs, surgery, disease treatment articles.
You may have to do that work yourself, trying to put together numerous articles and books into a unified theory.
Best done at a college with a good epidemiology department where you can take classes from experts on the topic.
Running increases circulation of fluid in the joints that need lubrication.
Running increases circulation of all the fluids in the body.
Eyes, joints, and bones very hard to get enough circulation so need a lot of motion to get fluids where needed.
Sitting is very unhealthy.
You may not have to run 20 miles per day for optimal health.
Probably 7 miles is enough, plus you need to walk frequently thru the day.
The more you walk, swim or bike, the less you need to run to get enough circulation and exercise.
Human body is designed to run in the sun – that is our ecological niche how we survived and could outcompete tigers, lions, apes, monkeys, mammoths, bison,… for food
Skin is a hairless solar panel can function in high heat that would kill the hairy animals so they will not attack you at noon if you are smart.
Humans can run down and spear any animal by chasing them in the middle of the day over long distances.
Hairy animals will overheat and drop dead – even fast running horses, etc.
I recall Finland has the highest heart disease rate in the world.
Never figured out why.
Obviously not enough sun in winter.
Probably carbo beer, vodka, oats, bread, grain based diet.
Northern climates are depressing so they drink more and want to die young.
Alcohol a big problem in all the northern climates.
Russians drunk, sit indoors Hacking with computers and die young.
King of Sweden burned down a third of the villages in Germany until decided to go home.
They all sit around depressed and scheming against each other instead of going to suntan on the beach.
French live the longest — red wine better than beer empty calories why Germans die younger.
Bikinis healthier than Burkas why Muslims want to kill and die while French Rivera Brazil enjoy life.
Males should be clean shaven – no beards or other facial hair.
Short GI Joe haircuts or just shave bald – skinheads may be onto something.
Take off shirt when running or exercising outdoors.
Move to a sunny climate but not so hot that you cant get outdoors comfortably every day.
Runners probably much less arthritis and other diseases if you can round up enough studies.
But runners eat more calories and bad foods of all types too, probably.
Marathon competitors are famous carbo loaders
Carbohydrates very pro-inflammatory, cross linking, cause aging.
Especially refined carbohydrates
No white rice
Complex carbohydrates are better but still problematic, cross-linking, aging, etc.
Get your carbohydrates from vegetables, whole fruits, sweet potatoes (real yellow whole).
Most people need more healthy fat but not GMO soy corn hexane refined vegetable oils omega 6/3 ratio way out of balance.
Many great fats – palm oil, coconut, avocados, olives, flax, cold pressed, krill, sardines, anchovies,…
Most people need to burn their own fats until they get down to a normal weight so skip eating much fat until you burn down to an optimal weight.
The problem is to increase exercise and decrease bad foods.
Most food has problems nowadays.
Diversify your risk.
Lots of different kinds of exercise and lots of different kinds of food.
Don’t overdo anything food or exercise.
Yes. Need more muscle and less fat
99% of the population is too weak and too fat, my estimate.
Strength training also grows bones, tendons, cartilage, supporting tissues and other organs.
Need more coordination, reflexes, mental clarity too.
Huge health problems getting worse – some live longer but in worse health.
Go into health and learn how to fix this mess.
Reverse the disease economy.
Create a healthy survivable economy.
I am doing math and computers too late to change.
School starting 50,000 people showed up yesterday ridiculous traffic jams, construction, dirt, smoke, deranged zombies, unknown genders everywhere,
Young people are scary nowadays but some are ok and many are still quite good.
Not discussed is the change of diet from earlier times with the emphasis now on low fat high carbohydrate diets causing increased inflammation throughout the body.
In addition the catch-all term exercise is banted around with no specific definition or the assumption that exercise is long distance running.
Both the orthopedic surgeon I had as well as my primary physician (MD and PhD) have cautioned against long distance running. Pounding on joints and increased oxidation in general. Ever notice older runners switching to cycling or swimming supplemented by weight training?
Large sample Swedish study compared those that didn’t exercise with a group that exercised daily for an hour or less (included swimming and resistance training), and a third who ran marathons frequently year after year. This last group had the highest level of arteriosclerosis. Pavo Nurmi the famed Finnish runner died of arterioscheosis in his mid 60s. He ran constantly.
I also question thin is always better. My own physician (also a published researcher) believes muscle to fat ratios is more determinative of a long and active life.
I have wondered if we will or even DO see more arthritis in long time distance runners. Yes, they’re usually lighter than average American but does running thousands of unnecessary miles actually cause any damage or does it somehow rebuild the cartilage in the knee? So constant high impact causes no damage?
I have had nothing but good results from exercise.
Nothing good to say about junk food.
Modern Junk food makes people fat and lazy.
So they exercise less and get arthritis, glaucoma, diabetes, dementia, etc.
Exercise is good for the joints, eyes, brains, the whole body.
Exercise the first thing in the morning #1 priority, 2 hours or more.
Then shower and go to work where you will be clean, energetic, all fired up.
Exercise again after work to make sure you got enough exercise.
Exercise in groups for peer pressure.
Measure your performance.
Exercise prevents many modern diseases, stupidity, liberalism, etc.
Exercise and diet the best medicines for most diseases even if failed to exercise and eat right in the past.
Harvard Study Of Skeletons
Age-Related Arthritis Preventable
scoured the country for skeletons. Thousands of them. unearthed the bones in academic collections that ranged from ancient remains found by archaeologists, 19th-century bodies never claimed at morgues cadavers donated recently to medical schools.
His quest: to gauge the rise of osteoarthritis, the most common form of arthritis, which tends to come with age and affect hips and knees.
more than 2,000 skeletons for a telltale polished look, called eburnation, that means the bones have been rubbing against each other.
The finding: Knee osteoarthritis has doubled in prevalence since the mid-20th century
arthritis has been on the rise as Americans live weigh more
after the research team adjusted for weight and age, they found the doubling in arthritis rates.
not the two risk factors that receive by far the most attention old age and obesity.”
our ancestors had far less arthritis than we do roughly
8 percent of the early skeletons vs.
16 percent of the more recent ones
there’s hope that we could figure out what they were doing right.
“The most important message here is that we shouldn’t consider arthritis a wear-and-tear disease of age,” says Harvard professor Daniel E. Lieberman senior author
“Arthritis is a disease that becomes more common as you age, but it’s not caused by ‘wear and tear ;
caused by the absence of physical activity,
so a major way to prevent arthritis could be moving more, not less.
physical inactivity is his prime suspect
“It is one of the biggest differences between people who live today and people who lived in the past whose risk of arthritis was much lower”
like many of our grandparents, who tended to sit much less and walk much more than we do.
large difference over time
inactivity is having an effect.
Exercise makes joints more stress-resistant
“Their cartilage gets thicker; the muscles that support and protect the joints get stronger.
joints are hardier when you’re active, so the absence of activity isn’t good for our joints.
“Your probability of having arthritis today is more than double at a given age what your probability of having arthritis was if you had been born before World War II,
“And obviously, genes for arthritis haven’t swept the population since World War II. It’s something about the way we’re living today that’s changed. And those are factors that we can shift.”=
