Running on Empty Running Blind
Templeton residents who enjoy those long distance runs at a brisk pace will be surprised to learn that they may be doing more harm than good to their hearts. For years we have been told that the more exercise we get the better. Recent studies by Dr. James O’Keefe suggest otherwise. Here is what the good doctor has to say on the subject of over doing the exercise.
The good news is that our bodies seem to repair themselves over time if animal experiments are any indication of cardiac improvements in this area.
Couch potatoes should not be all smiles as studies show that moderate exercise is still the best bet, adding about six years to the average lifespan.
Fluoridated communities (Templeton was one of the first in Mass.) may see more heart problems due to fluorides connection to cardiovascular complications. Here is Dr. Mercola on this subject.
It appears that die -hard runners need to slow down. Research shows that this may be better for our hearts and make us less thirsty for fluoridated water.
For heart healthy reasons we may want to vote fluoride out of our water system at this years Annual Town Meeting.
Take the time to learn about “The Devil’s Poison” (fluoride) for goodness sake.
