According to the current data of the Department of Health, the leading cause of mortality for 2004-2008 per 100,000 population is diseases of the heart. Most diseases of the heart would be due to an unhealthy and sedentary lifestyle for us Filipinos, one of which is Atherosclerosis or the build up of fats and cholesterol in and on the artery walls of the heart.
Sedentary lifestyle is the main culprit why many would suffer the fangs of an early death. But what we Filipinos do not realize is that most diseases of the heart can be prevented or even eradicated by simply modifying an individual’s lifestyle.
The American Council on Exercise (ACE) stated that, having a regular physical activity has its great benefits for adults and older adults. It shows a strong evidence of improved cardiorespiratory and muscular fitness, improved cardiovascular and metabolic health biomarkers, lower the risk of high blood pressure, and lower the risk of an early death.
