Physical Activity Benefits Those with Asthma

Physical activity is good for the heart, good for the mind, good for burning calories, and good for reducing the risk of cancer. Now a small Brazilian study has found aerobic exercise can improve asthma symptoms in those with moderate-to-severe disease compared to the control group. Two 35-minute bouts of treadmill exercise per week for 12 weeks resulted in less-frequent exacerbations and better quality of life.

PositiveTip: Maintain physical fitness for all-round good health and reduced risk of disease.
