Stay healthy longer. Run in the sun. No junk food: Arthritis prevent by exercise

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 flour
No sugar
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.
Bob wrote:

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?

BB

I have had nothing but good results from exercise.
Nothing good to say about junk food.

Ruthe

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.

Move to safety, health, performance, $ jobs

Avoid Rural Areas especially farm areas with herbicides, pesticides,…
If a rural area is livable it have cell phone towers, the easiest utility to provide. Signal is stronger in rural areas to cover wider area.
Your phone will blast out more radiation over that longer distance.
Cell phones are safer in the cities where many areas signal is weaker and more idiots using phones sapping strength of signal. Dont worry about phones – just turn off and remove the batteries.

Don’t worry about wifi — many other problems will kill you much sooner than wifi unless you are really sick. If you are that sick you need treatment for the underlying diseases ASAP. Just keep electronics out of your home as much as possible.
Unplug everything while you are asleep.
Remove batteries from phones
Or don’t buy anything with batteries.
Live in modern steel apartment building.

Don’t even visit rural areas.
Don’t drive on 2 lane roads – very dangerous, addicts weaving, pulling out in front of you. Don’t drive.
Cars are very unhealthy – involves sitting.
Walk everywhere or at least bike.
Move to city where you can walk everywhere.
Talk to 50 people per day.
Healthy people with energy – if they can survive and thrive you can too if you fix your problems. Take exams, tests, sports competitions to make sure you are better than normal. Fix problems and optimize until you are high performing in all areas.

Cities have the jobs and services you need.
People have been escaping rural problems for over 100 years unless the die before they can get out.
Smaller cities such as Springfield have huge medical facilities for treating diseases caused by rural lifestyles.
I observed this yesterday stopped in cancer center restroom waiting for my dental cleaning appointment. You can look at patients and see their diet exercise profile (all whites). Huge drug problems in the rural areas too caused by depression, lack of jobs, Medical establishment getting rich 1% by treating poor rural white trash. Avoid rural areas
Avoid becoming a victim.

Doctors drive Porsches. Patients drive pickups and junkers.
Rural areas are “food deserts” junk food amazing out in Kansas no wonder they are sick,
addicts addicted to drugs, junk food, TV, Cable, Radio, Games, computers, Broadband,…
Leave rural areas to agriculture professionals who know massive industrial farming operations. You can’t get into agriculture without proper training.

Move to San Francisco or Boston to see why they are so much healthier.
You must observe for years in person to learn why they are successful and how to do it yourself.

Don’t buy real estate until you have rented for a few years nearby. Get the job first, then rent an apartment nearby.
There are problems everywhere so you will probably have to move soon. Have to study each location carefully.
Trial and error.
Optimize.
Walk.

You may find a place to buy but probably not.
The best locations are bought up by investors who build apartments, coops, condos, large modern steel buildings. So you will have to rent
Benefit from all the work investors do for you.
Don’t re-invent the wheel.

Jobs change frequently.
You will have to move to new cities and states.
Don’t get stuck owning real estate you will have to sell.
You only make brokers, escrows, tax collectors, welfare people happy. And a huge waste of time – find, fix up, maintain, sell….
Usually a terrible investment – can do much better 1% interest in banks Don’t pay extra to get locked down.

Focus on the best possible training to get the best possible job. Nowadays that is often in medical care
Always move near one of the top universities in the state
You need the classes
You need the libraries
You need the gyms
You need all the medical, dental, optical, services that students and educated people demand Always take at least 1 class per semester

Always get up 5AM and go straight to the gym for at least 2 or 3 hours. Get a really hard workout
You must exercise properly for mental and physical health.
Then shower and walk to work.
Then walk to class. Harder classes are usually 4pm or later.

Then walk to library to catch up on all news and issues you are following. Learn the filing system so you can find the books without using directories.
Go to at least 2 libraries per day: Public and university very different and useful.

Before leaving the library turn on phone or use library computers to check emails etc. online. Then turn off phone and remove battery.

Then go to dinner.
Then go home and sleep.

Choose states carefully.
Big differences in jobs, environment, and university quality. Texas probably the best but a huge state and complicated.
Florida interesting simpler quieter funner.
Columbia Missouri good and St Louis, Rolla, Kirksville, interesting options for some people but not enough sunshine for health.

Prevent Glaucoma. Run for eye health. 29,854 runners

Ophthalmology news – GLAUCOMA – Exercise & glaucoma

In a study of male runners, every meter-per- second increment

Exercise & glaucoma

by Matt Young EyeWorld Contributing Editor

Common risk factors for glaucoma include age, family history, and high IOP, but a new report suggests that lack of exercise could also put people at risk for disease development. The study, which analyzed 29,854 male runners, generally found that the

corresponded to a faster the runner, the more his 36.7% reduction in risk of incident glaucoma risk decreased.

• Longer usual running distances correlated with lower risk of incident glaucoma •

Some of the risk reduction could have risen from the leanness of runners

data provide preliminary evidence that vigorous physical activity may reduce glaucoma risk,”

according to a report by Paul T. Williams, Ph.D.,
Life Sciences Division, Lawrence Berkeley Laboratory,
Donner Laboratory, Berkeley, California

Running for sight?

Dr. Williams analyzed a cohort of 29,854 male runners without diabetes and found 200 incident glaucoma cases.

Exercise & glaucoma | Ophthalmology Magazine

Source: Paul T. Williams, Ph.D.

Dr. Williams found that every meter-per-second increment in performance corresponded to a 36.7% reduction in risk.

“Our findings suggest that faster 10-km race performance (presumably reflecting cardiorespiratory fitness)
and longer running distances predict lower risk for incident, participant-reported, physician-diagnosed glaucoma,”

the greatest risk reduction was between men who ran >5 versus <3.5 [meters per second]

there were statistically and clinically significant risk reductions for incremental performance differences even among the slower runners.”

Relative to the slowest runners:

Risk for incident glaucoma decreased 29% in men who ran 3.6 to 4.0 meters per second.

• Risk decreased 54% for those who ran 4.1 to 4.5 meters per second.

• Risk declined 51% for those who ran 4.6 to 5.0 meters per second.

There was virtually no risk among men who ran faster than five meters per second.

physical fitness becomes even more relevant to maintaining the ocular health of older people.

“They tend to be sedentary and undernourished,”

Some of the risk reduction could have risen from the leanness of runners

https://www.eyeworld.org/article-exercise

Exercise & glaucoma | Ophthalmology Magazine

running distance was also significantly predictive of incident glaucoma,
even when adjusted for both baseline BMI [body mass index] and 10-km performance,”

Risk declined with greater usual running distance.

Dr. Williams cited previous research in attempting to identify why running might reduce glaucoma risk.

“Running has been shown specifically to acutely decrease IOP in proportion to its intensity,”

“There are also several studies suggesting that exercise training may chronically reduce IOP:
one showing an IOP difference of 1.1 mm Hg at the end of a 10-wk aerobic conditioning program compared with maintained sedentary lifestyle.”

strenuous exercise does seem to reduce glaucoma risk.

This may have some bearing on public health policy.
“Current public health guidelines for physical activity focus on the motivation of sedentary individuals to become moderately active,
while acknowledging the additional benefits that may accrue for more vigorous exercise,”

“Whether the reduction in [glaucoma] risk applies to the lower doses of moderate-intensity exercise currently advocated remains to be determined.”

Perhaps public health officials should forgo recommendations about moderate-intensity exercise and focus instead on more vigorous exercise.

“We believe that public health recommendations should emphasize the benefits of further increasing physical activity among those already active and include visual health among the possible health benefits,”

Elderly considerations

John D. Sheppard, M.D., professor of ophthalmology, microbiology, and immunology, Eastern Virginia Medical School, Norfolk, Va., added that

physical fitness becomes even more relevant to maintaining the ocular health of older people.

“They tend to be sedentary and undernourished,” Dr. Sheppard said.

During the natural aging process, people have more infirmities and joint problems, and ocular pressure also rises.

“If I tell glaucoma patients to take a walk every day, that makes a huge difference,” You don’t have to be a marathon runner.
Instead, focus on good nutrition, good health, and don’t be a couch potato.”
