Cycling reduces the risk of flu

That cycling is a source of health is something we already knew. Riding a bicycle regularly favors the circulatory system, improves our fitness and prevents cardiovascular diseases.

Now, a study also suggests that cycling also prevents the flu. This study, conducted by the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine, concludes that cycling intensively for at least two and a half hours a week reduces the risk of catching flu by 10 percent.

According to the researchers, the rhythm of pedaling is very important. In order for cycling to act as a cold prevention factor, activity on the bicycle must be intense enough to break a sweat or breathe with difficulty.

According to Dr. Alma Adler, one of the researchers who participated in the study, « although the findings are preliminary, cycling really shows a health benefit. It is something that everyone can do to reduce their chance of getting the flu.

This is not the first time that a scientific study has linked the practice of cycling as a disease prevention mechanism. Another analysis carried out by a Dutch research team suggests that cycling on a regular basis is equivalent to lengthening life expectancy in 14 months.
