How Just a simple 5 Minute Run Can Prevent Heart disease!

This article really interested me in many ways. At first I really just thought that it was going to be a simple running article but the statistics that were shown in the article really had an impact on my idea for health! Kids these days are exposed to a lot of junk food, things that can really harm your body and especially your heart. A good way to really maintain a healthy diet for me and stay fit has been to run as much as I can to stay healthy. This article truly shows how much just a simple 5 minute run can help your life in the long run!

  1. I believe that this article poses a very important idea: keeping your heart healthy is easier than it seems. I don't think people realize how little time and energy it takes to help your body, which according to this article, is only a few minutes a day (and not even at full speed). I think the idea of running is intimidating for many people, but if they knew how little it takes to improve their health, many more would be encouraged to run.

  2. I agree with Jenna that most people don't realize that it is really that simple to just do a 5-minute run per day to lower the risk of getting heart disease. I think the part that's not easy for many people is to actually do it on a daily basis. However if they see the value in those few minutes and take it more seriously, it is surely a great and especially non-painful way to keep them healthy.

  3. i agree with Jenna. When we run, our heart beat faster. Every time our heart beats, it pumps blood into our veins and around our body. Also the longer you run, the more your heart pumps blood. According to ( http://www.mydr.com.au/heart-stroke/heart-how-your-heart-pumps-blood-around-your-body) is shows what does the blood do in our body to keep us healthy.
    Just 5 minutes of running is good enough to keep the our heart pumping and sending fresh blood to our body.

  4. I definitely agree with this article because I believe that any sort of 5 minute activity can make you live longer, instead of sitting on the couch being a couch potato you're out using your muscles and getting an active blood flow throughout your body. Also when you exercise you feel so much better about your self and are just full of life and energy

  5. I agree with Jenna and James about this article because any kind of activity that involves actually physically doing something will slightly lessen the probability of having heart problems. But, I believe that one five minute run wouldn't do much to your body. Maybe if they did a five minute run every day. I agree with AJ because the run does keep your heart pumping, but I am not sure if it exactly prevents heart disease if done once. Are you saying that if I go on a five minute run right now, I have prevented heart disease forever?

  6. I think it's pretty amazing to see just how little someone needs to do to keep them away from heart disease. Since heart disease is a really big killer nowadays in America it's really important that we get information on how to prevent it while we're young. So many people are too lazy to make the effort to do a little exercise but I think that if people saw just how little it takes to make a pretty drastic difference in your life expectancy then more people would probably run. Before reading this article I would've thought that five minutes of running probably doesn't do much at all but this article proved me wrong!

  7. I think its crazy to think that just a simple five minute run can help prevent something as deadly as heart disease. Heart disease is one if the biggest killers in American society, and were it so easy to prevent, it would not be as prevalent as it is today. Prevention would require running with rigor and consistency.

  8. It's really sad to think that the biggest killer in America could potentially be solved by taking 5 minutes out of one's day each day. That really speaks to what has become of the average American's lifestyle. We, as a nation, have gotten so wrapped up in what is easy and efficient that we have lost sight of hard work without instant gratification.
