Super Immunity

Moira Riccio

That's the title of this book by Joel Fuhrman, MD.  "People who exercise regularly have fewer and milder colds--at least that's what we perceive, and exercise enthusiasts brag about not being as sick as sedentary folks."  However the author goes on to tell us that studies do show the following:

*  Frequency of colds among people who exercise 5 or more times each week was 46% less than those people who did not exercise.
*  Participants were quizzed about their lifestyle, dietary patterns, and stressful events, all of which can affect the immune system.
*   Exercise not only helps your immune system fight off simple bacterial infections; it also decreases your chances of developing heart disease, osteoporosis, and cancer. (!)
*   When middle-aged men were followed for 26 years, researchers found that those who exercised rigorously lived the longest.

"It truly is 'survival of the fittest'!"
