Physical Activity Will Contribute To Lowering High Blood Pressure, Even In Polluted Areas
This Affects 91% Of The Global Population, Who Lives In Areas With Poor Air Quality, According To The World Health Organization
It is well known that outdoor physical activity is beneficial for cardiovascular function and overall body health. However, there are cases in which air pollution might force a person to rethink going outside to exercise. This is a public concern because 91% of the global population lives in areas where air quality is below the guidelines of the World Health Organization. According to a recent study, intense physical activity in non-polluted areas resulted in lower blood pressure. However, exercising in polluted areas also had a beneficial effect on lowering blood pressure. Therefore, the positive effect of physical activity on the reduction of blood pressure was greater than the negative effect of air pollutants on overall body health. More Information click here.
