Longer Running Can Damage Heart

June 22nd, 2014 — 11:59pm

With so much hype around the world for marathon running, health experts have said that running for long period of time, especially marathon like races can cause serious cardiac ailments to people. Once cropped up, these maladies can sustain for a lifetime period, warn the physicians. Acceding to a recent survey, those who are eyeing to get a leaner look by taking part in several marathon race events often end up with having pacemakers when they start aging and the number of such people is increasing with each day, say the doctors. Funded by the British Heart Foundation, this study was initially tested on mice, it showed that excessive running may bring changes in body but also affects the electrical pulse rate of the heart, at the same time, it also causes the super fit to suffer from various abnormal heart rhythms. Athletes who have taken retirement after being involved in sports like marathon are often being diagnosed with either rapid or erratic heartbeat which is medically termed as arrhythmias.

According to scientists molecular changes in the heart due to excessive training cause such problems if not diagnosed in time, it can lead to serious heart ailments and even death. For normal adults the ideal heart beat should be around 60-100 per minute. But for the marathon athletes this calculation changes hugely and comes to around 30 per minute. Danger comes when this rate goes down further at night. Similar problems are often faced by the cyclists also. Famous cyclists like Miguel Indurain and Sir Chris Hoy, were diagnosed with really low heart beats. Both the athletes never had more than 28 heart beat per minute when they took retirement from their game. Scientists say that running affect the nervous system of the body and it is the nervous system which is responsible for control of heat’s pacemaker.
