Spanish researchers conducted their study on 13,000 people who had been linked to coronary artery disease for five years. There is no cure for this disease but only exercises and some medications would increase their lifespan. During the study, the patients were asked to stand the treadmill test until they feel tired and stop. The goal of this test was to measure metabolic equivalents, a unit that tracks the rate of energy spent during exercise. One MET is the energy used while resting without doing any work. Low-intensity activities such as moving slowly, used up 3 METS, moderate-intensity activities such as fast walking used up 3-6 Mets; and high-intensity activities push into more than 6 METs. In this study, participants were deemed to have a good functional capacity if they could achieve 10 METs on the exercise task.
At the end of the test after five years1253 patients died from Cardiovascular disease, 670 from cancer and 650 from other miscellaneous reasons.
This is the result of the Spanish research presented this week at a European Society of Cardiology Meeting, which puts forth the importance of regular exercise that reduces the symptoms of cardiovascular disease and cancer.
