Exercise can be as effective as pills

Wednesday, 2 October 2013

Exercise can be as good as pills for treating common conditions as heart diseases and stroke, a study has found.

According to the new findings, exercise could be added to prescriptions and experts stress that patients should not replace their medications for exercise, rather they should use both in tandem.

Generally, regular exercise has several health benefits:
- Boosts your self-esteem, mood and quality of life.
- Reduces the risk of major diseases, such as diabetes, heart diseases, cancer and stroke by up to 50%.
- Reduces the risk of early death to 30%.

Too few adults currently practice enough exercise. In England, 3 out of 10 individuals do the recommended 2.5 hours of moderate intensity activity, as cycling or fast walking, every week.

According to the study, exercise not only prevents diseases but can also have an effective role in treating them too.
