The negative effects of obesity on health are not offset by an increase in aerobic capacity, according to a new study. This is contrary to the idea that aerobic capacity can compensate for the health effects of obesity.
Obesity increases the risk of a number of serious diseases such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease and stroke. One of the main causes of overweight and obesity are lack of physical activity. People who are physically active are drinking fewer calories from food and when people regularly perform burns are treated.
People who are obese may-are physically fit Several previous studies that people say that can.Overweight valued at a lower risk of heart disease and other conditions compared to obese people exercise regularly, do not actively exercise. It turns out that the idea of fat but healthy is misleading.
A new study published in the International Journal of Epidemiology published found that men with normal weight – whatever the level of aerobic fitness – have a lower risk of death compared to obese men with high aerobic capacity.
with an average age of 18. In order to assess the researcher Peter Nordström, Department of Social Medicine and Rehabilitation, Geriatrics at the University of Umea in Sweden, and colleagues analyzed data from 1,317,713 men their aerobic capacity each participant was asked to do cycling test, where you are asked to leave cycling because of exhaustion.
The men with normal weight are adapted to a lower risk of death than men fat. During follow-up, on average, 29 years old, man, fifth in aerobic capacity is the place found a 48% lower risk of death compared to those in the bottom five, according to the researchers. analysis of the results, however, depending on the state of obesity and fitness, the team found data that could oppose the theory of fat but fit.
Although aerobic capacity was associated with reduced mortality in men with normal weight and obesity, the researchers discovered the benefits of falling mortality in men correspond to obesity. death risk reduction has not been identified in men who are overweight with high aerobic capacity. In addition, compared to men, the suit overweight, the researchers found men with normal weight, with low aerobic capacity are still at risk of death was lower at 30%.
Although the study included only male participants, the researchers believe their results support the idea that aerobic capacity, the health effects of obesity to eliminate.
