Adulthood Linked To Lower Amount Of Physical Activity

New York: Leaving school and getting a job both lead to a drop in the amount of physical activity, while becoming a mother is linked to increased weight gain, researchers have found. Many people tend to put on weight as they leave adolescence and move into adulthood and this is the age when the levels […]

Physical Activity May Lower Risk Of Certain Types Of Cancers

New York: Getting the recommended amount of physical activity is linked to a reduced risk of seven types of cancer, researchers have found. The study, published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology, analysed data from more than 750,000 adults in the United States, Europe and Australia and found that recommended amounts of physical activity correlated […]

Lower Physical Activity Leads To Higher Death Rates

Rio de Janeiro: Researchers have found the people who had the lowest levels of physical activity had higher rates of death compared to people with higher levels of activity, adding that nine per cent of all premature deaths are caused by not getting enough physical activity. Physical activity is known to reduce deaths from heart […]

Excess Physical Activity Can Harm Athletes

London: Researchers have found that, in top athletes, excess physical activity could be harmful and also associated with major fatigue and reduced performances. The study published in the journal Current Biology shows that intensive physical training could harm brain capacity, particularly cognitive control. For the findings, Mathias Pessiglione and his team from Inserm Research Institute […]

Diet more important than exercise to lose weight: Study

New York: For those planning to hit the gym to lose weight, take note. A new study suggests that diet is far more important than physical activity including walking, fidgeting and formal exercise. The reason is because exercising increases appetite especially with prolonged endurance exercise or with weight lifting that can ultimately sabotage the best […]

Evening walk may not cause sleep issues as previously thought, says study

London: Engaging in moderate physical activity including walking, cycling or jogging in the evening does not cause sleep problems, suggest researchers. The research challenges previous studies that suggested that sleep quality can be improved by avoiding exercise in the evening. The findings showed that doing exercise for four hours before going to bed does not […]

2.5 hours of physical activity per week may prevent Alzheimer's

New York: Engaging in at least 2.5 hours of physical activity per week, including walking, running, swimming and aerobics, may delay cognitive decline and prevent Alzheimer’s disease, suggests a new study. The results support that physical activity of at least 150 minutes per week can have benefits on cognition and dementia progression. It was seen […]

Resistance training boosts exercise motivation, suggests research

London: Lack of motivation is a big factor for many people not following an exercise regime that they initially planned. But a few months of resistance training can change that by instilling in people an intrinsic interest in pursuing physical activity, suggests new research. Resistance training can maintain and increase muscle strength and functional capacity […]

LGBQ more prone to diabetes than heterosexual teens: Study

Chicago: Lesbian, gay, bisexual and questioning youth are more likely to develop Type 2 diabetes, be obese and engage in less physical activity and more sedentary activities than heterosexual youth, a Northwestern University Medicine study has found. This is the largest study to date to report differences in levels of physical activity, sedentary behaviour and […]

Short physical activity break may boost child's fitness

London: Motivating schoolchildren to take a 15-minute break from class to do physical activity may boost their health and fitness levels, a new study suggests. The study examined the effectiveness of the popular Daily Mile initiative – which involves children taking a 15-minute break from class to do physical activity. The findings, published in the […]

Drinking water may boost mental skills in exercising elderly

New York: Older people who indulge in physical activity should increase their amount of water intake, to reap the full cognitive benefits of exercise, researchers suggest. Dehydration has been shown to impair exercise performance and brain function in young people, but less is known about its impact on older populations. The findings showed that hydration […]

Genetic risk of obesity increases among people with inadequate physical activity: Research

In a new study, researchers have found that inadequate physical activity and lack of proper sleep may enhance the effects of genetic risk factors for obesity. “We wanted to find out if obesity-related genes and activity level have an interactive effect on obesity risk – if there is a ‘double whammy’ effect of being both […]
