Scientists: physical education classes did not affect the lifespan

However, this is not an excuse not to exercise. Scientists from Finland have found that Jogging and exercise can improve the quality of life, but not its duration. Much genetics plays a big role, experts say.

Scientists conducted an experiment on laboratory rats. One group of animals was placed in an ordinary cell, and the other in the cage with special adaptations to increase their physical activity levels.

The results of the study, life expectancy in the group of physically active rats was even lower than in the control group. Can I transfer the data to your human body, and whether the experiment is sufficiently objective? These questions are open, like the question of the impact of sport on life expectancy.

In other studies it has been proven that moderate physical activity and daily exercises strengthen the cardiovascular system and protect from development of many diseases of advanced age: from osteoporosis to diabetes.
