Regular aerobic exercise has been found to be very important in helping people to control their blood pressure and blood lipid profiles. There is even some evidence to suggest that smokers who start exercising may have an easier time in quitting their habit. The Centers for Disease Control in Atlanta, Georgia, recently surveyed all of the medical literature that examined the relationship between exercise and heart disease. They concluded that the risk for heart disease is doubled for inactive people as compared with active people. In fact, regular aerobic exercise was found to be just as important as smoking cessation, high blood pressure control, and blood lipid management in preventing heart disease. However, for people who are at high risk for heart disease, vigorous aerobic exercise has been found to be a promoter of sudden death from heart attack during the exercise bout.
So in light of this information, what is the practical advice about exercise? People who smoke, have high blood pressure, high blood-cholesterol levels, and/or who have parents or siblings who have died before age 50 from heart disease should have a thorough checkup before starting an exercise program. If the physician gives approval for exercise, a moderate exercise program such as brisk walking is safer than vigorous forms of exercise such as running. The better result will be created if you are relaxing while moving with best running earbuds because of lacking distraction.

So what is the conclusion of this matter of exercise? Many broad claims have been made regarding the health benefits of regular exercise. But these must be balanced against the risks posed by too high a dosage. In other words, we must be careful not to dilute the elixir with unsubstantiated claims or to make it too potent by taking too much.
