Exercise May Reduce Risk Of Serious COVID-19 Complication

Researchers at the University of Virginia found that exercise can reduce your risk of potentially deadly acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS) that can affect COVID-19 patients. They published their study saying that exercise can be a powerful tool in preventing this form of lung damage that diminishes the organ’s ability to provide the body with adequate oxygen. ARDS allows fluid to leak into the lungs and makes breathing difficult, according to the American Lung Association.

Patients with ARDS often cannot breathe on their own and may require ventilator support to help circulate oxygen in the body, says Johns Hopkins Medicine. It affects 3%-17% of patients with COVID-19.

According to Eat This, Not That!, lead researcher Zhen Yan, Ph.D., said that aerobic exercise can prevent ARDS by increasing the amount of antioxidants in our bodies that protect tissues and prevent disease. Cardiovascular exercise including running, walking, swimming, or biking also trains the lungs to be healthier, says Baruch Vainshelboim, Ph.D., an expert in cardiorespiratory fitness.

  1. It all sounded Ok until this line;

    “It affects 3%-17% of patients with COVID-19”

    Are they kidding !!??

    50% or so of [Younger] Covid “PATIENTS” are barely aware that they have it !

    Of those who actually feel it, a good percentage do not even test for it.

    That leaves us with approx 25% of covid “PATIENTS” who are sick AND tested positive.

    MAYBE 3%-17% of THIS SEGMENT have ARDS

  2. Feel free not to post this for the public. I hope you and your site forgives me for writing this. I’m writing to you out of anger and pain because of all these tragedies. Why aren’t you blasting with posts about guidance from Rabbi Dr. Glatt and Dr. Ditzheck and pesokim from Rabbi Hershel Shechter and Rabbi Willig etc. Regarding enforcements and restrictions etc. I personally don’t get much of my news from jewish sites but being that many do, you have the responsibility to bring the awareness etc. Please forgive me for writing it but I’m extremely angry and sad

    • Calm down. All you’re upset about is that we’re not following in lockstep with the Modern Orthodox agenda. There are other people in other Rabbinic circles. There are other sects within Orthodox Judaism. You’ve got to get put of your little bubble. Stop being so jealous.
