Lebaran holiday period is over, time to return to normal daily activities. Perhaps many of us that due to various reasons, change the activity during the month of Ramadan until the post-Lebaran. The most obvious is usually a sports activity which generally decreased.
For those who are diligent prayers during the fasting month tarawih may not be much of a problem vacancy sports activity was at least replaced by movements in the prayer, which in addition contain the value of worship, as well as healthful.
However, what about those who totally stopped exercising and reducing their physical activity for more than a month? Especially during Lebaran, sometimes people go crazy to see gelimang food at home or your home and family who visited during stay in touch. In the end, uncontrollable body weight back, complaining mind body and clothing re-tighten.
Hmm? workout time again! Just as eating, exercise should be done every day. Do not immediately think of sport heavy sweating, light activities such as brisk walking or cycling around the compound, is an enjoyable exercise alternative.
Sports medicine specialist, Dr. L Toruan Phaidon MM, express, sport is a must. "Just as you pray and worship according to religion and belief to spiritual needs, then the sport is a physical need," he said.
Phaidon add, sport or in everyday language is called exercise is an activity that uses physical force. Today, with the increasing degenerative diseases such as heart attacks, hypertension, diabetes, cholesterol, in the end many people know that one reason is the lack of sports activities.
Starting from this, the sport can be considered as "medicine", which then also inspire terlahirnya sports therapy (sports therapy). Better to prevent than cure. Well, other than healthy, regular exercise has been shown to prevent the emergence of diseases, especially obesity as a gate various chronic diseases like diabetes and cardiovascular-related disease (cardiovascular). Therefore, the problems often experienced in people with excess body weight is the high metabolism.
"Metabolism is affected body mass. The greater the body mass, the more energy it takes to burn calories. This will be dangerous if you rarely exercise," said the professor of the Pennington Biomedical Research Center in Baton Rouge, Los Angeles, Timothy Church, MD MPH PhD.
Various international scale studies have been handed the findings of the benefits of exercise for health and disease prevention.
Recently, a study conducted by researchers at the American also revealed that regular exercise can protect men from prostate cancer.
Conclusions are based on the results of their tests against the 190 male participants who had a prostate biopsy. That the participants were quite active, although just walk away for a few hours per week, turned out to have significantly less tendency to get prostate cancer.
The majority of men in this study (approximately 58 per cent) in their daily life is lacking a lot of motion and more sedentary (sedentary). In other words, even if it could perform activities of walking, they are at most only do so less than 1 hour per week. The study also reported that the exercise (exercise) of men who have prostate cancer can minimize cancer development towards a more malignant.
"The increased portion of exercise performed, diminishing the risk of cancer," said urologist at Duke University Medical Center in America, Dr. Jodi Antonelli, who heads the writing of the study.
Responding to the results of a study published online in the Journal of Urology 22 September edition, the urologist at Duke and the Durham Veterans Affairs Hospital, Dr Stephen Freedland, reveals that these findings would be useful as a reference for medical scientists who still continues to seek evidence related benefits of exercise for cancer prevention.
"There are dozens of studies that report the benefits of exercise in reducing the risk of prostate cancer, some of which even a large-scale studies. However, it is still confusing and leaves a question mark," he said.
In addition to prostate cancer is the most feared men, women too can reap the benefits of exercise, namely keeping the risk of breast cancer.
This was revealed in a study by a team of researchers from the University of Southern Californiadi Los Angeles. They found that the motion of high-intensity exercise such as swimming, aerobics, and running can reduce the risk of breast cancer.
According to the researchers, exercise or exercise may reduce cancer risk through changes in metabolism and the immune system by reducing weight gain.
For the purposes of this study, the research team involving 110 599 participants in the California woman who traced his health history since 1995. Compared to participants who only exercised less than 30 minutes a week, participants are women who diligently perform high motion activity for more than 5 hours a week are known to experience a reduced risk of invasive breast cancer by 20 percent, and 31 percent of cancers for early stage breast cancer.
The study was conducted primarily to see the cumulative effects of sports or exercise a higher risk of breast cancer. Before the diagnosis of breast cancer, the average participants claimed only do a little exercise.
"The results of this study along with additional evidence about cancer prevention through physical activity is heavy, but pleasant in the long term against the risk of invasive breast cancer who have and which is still an early stage," said researcher as stated in the journal Archives of Internal Medicine
