Scientists have identified a lethal danger physical exertion for men”

If a person does not practice exercise on a daily basis, he or she can get into the health problems like obesity, heart diseases, diabetes, dementia, etc.

Researchers in the Netherlands claim that a "physical activity paradox" exists, where exercise may only be good for you if it's done outside of your job.

An worldwide team of researchers led by Pieter Coenen carried out a on evidence linking occupational physical activity and all-cause mortality.

Job stress can take a toll on your health, and as it turns out, if your job is physically demanding, it could cause an early death.

Pieter Coenen, a public health researcher at VU University medical centre in Amsterdam, said the reason for the disparity is unclear, but he believes it may reflect the different types of exercise people get at work compared with those in their free time.

In a new study researchers found men with highly physical jobs had an 18-percent higher risk of early death than those who were less active.

Professor Kay-Tee Khaw, professor of clinical gerontology at the University of Cambridge says: 'Sedentary work compared to work that requires heavy physical activity is hugely confounded by education, social class and all the other associated behaviours. "This evidence indicates that physical activity guidelines should differentiate between occupational and leisure time physical activity". Moderate physical activity can raise the heart rate and increase blood pressure just enough to strengthen the heart and the cardiovascular system.

While people who exercise for recreation generally stay active for about an hour and can take breaks when they feel exhausted, people with highly demanding physical jobs are often performing the same labor-intensive tasks for hours, with few breaks. "That may lead to the opposite of what is healthy for the heart, namely putting a strain on the cardiovascular system".

He says that it's all down to the type of exercise you do in your spare time, versus occupational physical activity.

The research combined results from 17 studies, dated between 1960 and 2010 - looking at data on nearly 200,000 people. The studies they added considered majorly the lifestyle aspects of smoking and alcohol consumption, etc. Coenen realized that not all of the studies regulated the harmful effects.

"The message I would give is that people should try to follow the physical activity guidelines regardless of what they do for a job", Hamer said.
