Adverse Events in Physical Activity

November 5th, 2013 by MorganDowney Leave a reply »

Few studies and even fewer public health advisories address the adverse effects of physical activity on some people. In this video, Claude Bouchard addresses the adverse effects of exercise and future of personalized exercise regimes. Dr. Bouchard references one of his earlier papers reported here last year showing a nearly 10% rate of adverse metabolic events in physical activity. (Thanks to Obesity and Energetics for bringing the video to our attention.)
