How exercise improves Heart Disease risk

The standard explanation of how Heart disease and stroke are caused is pretty well understood. In short the idea is that high levels of the wrong kind of cholesterol

I’m not covering the standard stuff we all know about. I’m looking at different angles. The stuff that rarely gets covered. I want to discuss the value of these insights.

How exercise combats Heart Disease, Insulin Resistance and Diabetes


How Exercise Improves Heart Disease Risk

Key General Articles: Activity and Health

Specific articles: Heart Disease and Activity

At this point I simply have a big long list of articles I have collected over the years. Each article has informed my view in some way. I’ve been on a path of discovery not just on how activity can help heart disease and how to actually make the activity easy to do.
I also want a more holistic approach. Understand more about food and drink so I can understand a fun lifestyle that works and also adapts to the person following it. That is why things have taken so long. This is a long quest full of confusing speculation and little fact. I’ve tried and explored so much that I’m now confident enough to share.

I apologise for the clutter. For now it’s just wonderful to finally have everything all in one place that is publicly accessible.

I can now begin to organise it properly and present it better.

Leads to the idea that cholesterol is part of the bodies repair response. High cholesterol simply reflects a high demand for repair. Very different from being a cause. More a symptom of heart disease.

  14. Problems in recycling cellular waster linked to clogged arteries: links the immune system and cellular repair with atherosclerosis. The article doesn’t link this but I can. It does lay the evidence down. Also shows multiple reasons why activity can reverse the process. By creating a famine in cells and thus clearing digestive problems.
  15. Does regular exercise improve our bodies ability to heal and restore?
  16. Training is about fast recovery: fitter people heal faster. That’s the point. activity forces your body to work around challenges. Makes you strong enough to overcome challenges. Glut 4 adaptations, capillaries, sugar and water saving effects.
  17. Calorie and nutrient intake over time: pins actual calorie values over time to increasing weight. Doesn’t point out the lack of data on activity
  18. brief exercise reduces the impact of stress

Shows that 3 mins High intensity Training per week has major health benefits, and that just being active in general is most important. Common theory is being challenged. It’s easier than we thought to get fit. High intensity exercise and can 3 minutes of exercise a week help make you fit

  35. Researchers Uncover Why Adults’ Hearts Don’t Regenerate A new research study suggests that quieting communication between heart cells and their environment protects this organ from harmful signals related to stresses such as high blood pressure, but at the cost of preventing heart cells from receiving signals that promote regeneration.
