According to a study published in JAMA Network Open, exercise is not harmful to human health than smoking, diabetes or heart disease.
Researchers at the Cleveland Clinic studied 122,007 patients from January 1, 1991 to December 31, 2014, which causes them to undergo tape testing and later record mortality.
Their results indicate that cardiorespiratory fitness is linked to longer life, and there is no limit to the benefits of exercise. There has been concern that those who are overactive or exercise excessive are at higher risk of death, but research shows that this is not the case.
Compared with the best training activists, the risk of death to those who were sedentary is 500 percent higher.
The study concludes that a sedentary lifestyle corresponds to a major disease. (Next animation via Reuters)
