Training may help to prevent cancer

In the ancient times training meant searching for the food, running for the rescue or battling. However, now people have successfully adapted to modern civilization and started life without movement. Meanwhile, their eating habits haven’t changed – we getting even larger amounts of calories every day comparing with our ancestors. As a result, we have more energy than we need what eventually leads us to overweight and other civilization diseases such as cancer. Trying to avoid them, the authors of the book “The new anti-cancer diet” suggest aerobic training.

According to the authors, movement firstly means giving out the energy from the body. Naturally, the body wants us to stop this process from wasting the energy – our feet become heavy, it becomes difficult to breathe, we find ourselves without strength. However, if we don’t pay attention to these symptoms, the body releases adrenaline and initiates active processes (inner blood vessel dilation, constriction of external blood vessel, brain work), that occur through the second breath. However, this feeling arises only when training aerobically – the body needs to get enough oxygen.

According to authors, to determine the appropriate charge of exercise you should pay attention to your pulse. Heart rate during the exercise should not exceed 75 percent of the maximum of the pulse which is

allowed for the advanced people and 70 percent of the maximum for beginners. Maximum heart rate for women is calculated from 226 minus the number of year, for men – the same minus 220. It is also suitable to do the talk test – if you can play sports without trouble in talking and breathing, the load is correct.

So, according to research yoga or other easy workout is not enough trying to protect against cancer. On the other hand, experts still advise to combine the strength and stretching exercises.
