Surprising Facts About Exercise
New Reasons to Get Exercising

US MED Gives BackYou might know the common benefits of exercise: it makes you feel great, protects your heart and makes you look better. But somehow these benefits haven't nudged you into doing it.

Maybe these new discoveries will.

* Exercise may erase your genetic risk for Alzheimer's disease. A Washington University study of people aged 45-88 identified those with a genetic risk for Alzheimer's. But the risk carriers who were physically active and meeting the American Heart Association guidelines for regular exercise showed no buildup of amyloid plaques.

* Both leisure and on-the-job activity protect against heart attacks. A Swedish study, reported by Tufts University, shows both light and moderate work activity created a reduced risk of heart attacks when compared to sedentary people.

As expected, all leisure time physical activity was associated with a reduced heart attack risk.

* Even 15 minutes of daily exercise prolongs your life.An eight-year study of 416,175 people in Taiwan showed that 15 minutes a day of physical activity, or 90 minutes a week, benefited both men and women.

It showed a 4 percent lower risk of death from any cause during the study period.
