Can running live longer? Long-term horse racing can live 19 years longer than ordinary people
A recent study by American scientists shows that the average life span of long-term marathoners can be about 19 years longer than that of ordinary people. This is undoubtedly a huge incentive for those who love running. Professor Ben Rosin is a cardiologist and an authority in the field of cardiac repair. He is also a long-term marathon enthusiast. A few years ago, when the media proclaimed that 'too many sports may kill youBen Rosing also has a personal experience. Many of his marathon runners are 70 or even 80-year-olds, and most of them look very healthy, and they seem to be able to run a marathon. This gave Ben Rosin a very intuitive feeling. In order to verify whether his opinion is correct, the 76-year-old Ben-Rosin decided to take a closer look. He carefully counted the death dates of all his previous runners, and recently he came up with his own research results. This paper was recently published in the journal 'The Physician and Sportsmedicine' under the title 'Is Marathon Toxic: An Observational Study of Cardiovascular Disease Prevalence and Lifespan of 54 Male Marathon Runners' The results of the research show that the marathon runners of Ben-Rosin have a life expectancy of about 19 years longer than that of ordinary American men. Most of these people were 40 years old in 1975 and belong to the category of normal adults. Rosin and these runners met 40 or 50 years ago. Since 1969, they have been running together in a small town in California every Sunday morning. Initially, the number of people was only five or six, and they ran about 6 miles each time. Later, everyone would have breakfast together after running. Soon they claimed to be themselves. 'The Breakfast Club' (The Breakfast Club). In the following ten years, this 'breakfast club' continued to grow, and the distance it ran became longer and longer. From 1970 to the mid-1980s, the number of 'Breakfast Club' appointments was between 35-50, and the distance was 20 miles. Every year as the local marathon day approaches, the club’s popularity will become even higher. The high-level runners in the club have a marathon score of about 2 hours 30 minutes to 2 hours 40 minutes, and some people’s goal is to run for 3 hours. A club member John Rudberg (John Rudberg) ) Said: 'This was a big goal back then.' Rosin’s research subjects are mainly 54 people who have been running in the club for a long time. Many of them have run hundreds of marathons, and some of them have been since college. Start running, and most start running after the age of 30-Rosin himself falls into this category. He has run 60 marathons so far, with a best time of 3 hours and 30 minutes. The 'Breakfast Club' still exists, but it has undergone some changes compared with the previous ones. Only about 20 people came to run on Sunday. Most of the older people use walking instead of running, but there are still some people who insist on running every week. Several times, even though they are over 80 years old. Since the mid-1970s, 18 of these 54 study subjects have died, with an average life expectancy of 81 years. The main cause of death is cancer-7 people died of this, with an average life span of 77.2 years; another 5 people died of heart disease, with an average life span of 86 years. Among the 36 still alive, 17% had some form of heart disease, with an average age of 76 years. Ben-Rosin said in the research report: 'My data fully shows that the incidence of cardiovascular disease and coronary artery disease among members of the 'Breakfast Club' is very low, and their life span is prolonged by 19 years.' This result is far better than that. Research results on other exercise methods, such as a survey of Tour de France riders, show that they can live an average of 8 years longer. However, Rosin also admits that his research has certain peculiarities, because most of the members of the 'Breakfast Club' have good education, career and insurance advantages, which are good for health and longevity. But even so, Ben Rosing’s research conclusions are still very encouraging. He pointed out at the end of the report: “The long-term observation data of 54 marathon runners reported here supports the view that some marathon runners have a lower risk of cardiovascular disease and a longer life. Said that there is no known reason against them participating in this kind of high-intensity exercise.'
