What is Move Movement and Why should one Join the Move Movement?
Move Movement is one of its kind "Global Movement" that is research based and encourages medical providers all over the world to promote physical activity (Body Movement as permitted by your patient's condition) and exercise programs along with Calorie Restriction (as a means of disease prevention and management; and for everyone to understand that any exercise is better than none. Upon joining this custom designed Move Movement, you will be able to prevent/or fight Heart Disease, Cancer, Stroke, Lung disease, Diabetes, Kidney Disease, Alzheimer's, Infectious Disease, Weight problems, Substance Abuse, Addiction, Stress and Emotional health issues which are the leading causes of morbidity and mortality today.
NEWS FLASH: Longevity News Updates -
Off-springs of Mothers less than 25 years and Not being Stout at age 30 years Found to be Associated with Extreme Longevity.
Results from two Prospective Studies find that Eating Meat (particularly Red Meat) Ups Risk of Cardiovascular and Cancer Mortality. Switching to Vegetarianism reduces All Cause and Cardiovascular and Cancer Mortality. Reduction in Daily Protein intake has been shown to prolong Lifespan by as much as 20%.
A new study has shown that virtual exercising is better than exercising on a stationary bike or a treadmill as it stimulates and keeps the brain more active and prevents or delays the development of dementia due to greater sensory stimulation of the brain and is safer than actually exercising outside for older adults.
SCIENTIFIC BASIS OF "MOVE MOVEMENT"
The basis of Move Movement is to increase Bodily movement (Physical activity or exercise). Health benefits of increases in Physical activity that have been recently in the NEWS and can be found on pub med are listed below:
Mar 12, 2012: The Journal of Biological Chemistry article found on PubMed - SIRT3 deacetylates isocitrate dehydrogenase 2 (IDH2) and regulates mitochondrial redox status.
The researchers provided a direct biochemical and biological evidence establishing a regulatory relationship between IDH2 and SIRT3 under acute and chronic Calorie Restriction (CR). They further noted that IDH2 activities have been known to be a major factor in cancer and that these results implicate SIRT3 as a potential regulator of IDH2 dependent functions in cancer cell metabolism.
Dr. Franklin H. Epstein's (June 9, 2011) Lecture "Sirtuins, Aging, and Medicine" accessible at The New England Journal of Medicine details the role and pathways of Sirtuins in the pathways of aging. In an article "Role of Sirtuins, calorie restriction and physical activity in aging" [Frontiers in Bioscience (Elite Edn.) Jan 01, 2012], a team of Italian researchers point out the clear-cut relationship between Sirt-1 and Calorie Restriction (CR) and in rats they showed that the levels of SIRT1 activity were raised in aged rats who performed moderately prolonged Physical Activity (PA). They found that in mammals, CR causes physiological and behavioral changes that lead to decreases in reactive oxygen species, thereby reducing oxidative stress and damage and thus leads to the hypothesis that CR by reducing oxidative stress extends lifespan by counteraction of aging.
Free PubMed Article: Impact of Calorie and Dietary Restriction on Markers of Health and Longevity in Humans and Animals: Available findings -
Calorie Restriction (CR) that has been used in several Human and Animal studies that has been used is 25% - 40% restriction of Daily Calorie intake has been shown to prolong Lifespan by approximately 40%. Roughly half of this prolongation of Lifespan has been attributable to Protein Restriction in several other studies which have shown an increase in Lifespan by approximately 20%.
In an Amazing Study done by Researchers at University of Sydney, Australia on Ant populations showed the Ill Effects of High Protein on Longevity: Ant Workers Die Young and Colonies Collapse when Fed a High Protein Diet.
Optimal body movement and proper diet is dependent on one's age, sex, physical condition, mental and physical diseases and conditions and should be determined after a thorough history and physical exam and further testing as advised by a licensed Health care provider. Before starting any physical activity program, please consult and obtain approval from your physician.
The body's homeostatic mechanisms prevent any gain from any sudden changes and as a golden rule activity and diet should be changed very gradually, thereby providing ample time for the body to adapt to the gradual changes and preventing any harmful rebound phenomenon or any acute severe bodily injury.
