Exercise rarely gets a bad press but maybe it doesn’t get enough good press. Of course exercising has risks but the risks associated with not exercising are greater.
Recent main stream media reports on exercise demonstrate this perfectly.
In a study reported widely regular exercisers, in the case of this study long distance cyclists, had significantly better functioning immune systems than non-exercisers: https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2018/mar/08/cycling-keeps-your-immune-system-young-study-finds
And the results of three other studies on best practice for non-specific low back pain (the most common, not serious but still painful and potentially incapacitating low back pain) showed that exercise plus advice on how to get back into everyday activity were the most effective treatments: https://www.theguardian.com/society/2018/mar/21/lower-back-pain-being-treated-badly-on-a-global-scale-study-says
In the later report it is no surprise to me to see my brilliant thesis tutor Nadine Foster as one of the lead researchers.
