Exercise can help build muscle, but it can also help blunt your metabolism and cause heart disease, a new study finds.
Exercise induced Bronchoconstaption, or EBI, is a type of heart attack that occurs when the heart beats too quickly.
People with EBI can lose more than 80% of their body weight.
The new study, published in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, used data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, a large population-based survey of more than 18 million Americans.
The researchers found that among the 2,000 men and women who completed the study, those who had been exercising had a 30% lower risk of developing EBI compared to people who did not exercise.
The researchers also found that exercise induced bronchoalveolar lavage, or IBI, was also lower among the people who had exercised.
In addition, exercise induced IBI was associated with a reduced risk of heart failure and death among those who exercised, the researchers found.
“This study shows that exercising at a high intensity, especially during the middle of the workday, can lead to increased risk of IBI and mortality,” said study author Christopher D’Arcy, a professor of medicine and preventive medicine at the University of Colorado Denver.
“We need to continue to focus on people who have an increased risk for these heart disease outcomes.”
The new findings come on the heels of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration lifting its ban on the use of steroid drugs, including testosterone, which is used to increase muscle mass and strength.
But it’s important to remember that there are still some drugs that can cause these symptoms, including diuretics and anticoagulants.
According to the American Heart Association, the risk of EBI is higher among people with existing heart disease.
The American Heart Federation has issued a statement urging Americans to stay active.
