Science Break: Breathing Exercise Seems as Beneficial as Medication or Walking
Thursday, August 5th

*online
Cardiovascular disease is the world’s leading cause of death and high blood pressure is a major risk factor. About 65 percent of American adults have high blood pressure but not even 40 percent are doing the recommended amount of physical activity. Research has now suggested, however, that just a five-minute daily breathing exercise that’s been called “strength training for breathing muscles” can lower blood pressure and improve cardiovascular health just as much as medication or aerobic exercise.
