This is Dr. Rob with your weekly health blog! I just read some information on exercise and how important it is for your overall health to just get the motion in. We always talk about it in the office. There was a study done in The Journal of Applied Physiology in 2002 that stated that people who do not exercise have a 50 – 72% higher incidences of deadly melanoma, or skin cancer, than people who exercise 5 to 7 times a week. You may be thinking, “what the heck does exercising have to do with skin cancer? I thought it was from the sun.”
Well it shows you they don’t know exactly what causes melanoma. There are other factors involved like the immune response. The fact is that when you are ih better shape you’re going to have a better immune response. It’s not just all the sun, you have to take care of your body from the inside out as well. That’s why people come in anf get regular adjustments to keep their nerve system working at 100%.
