Benefits of sport on cardiovascular risk in sedentary workers only

Sport Physical Activity (SpPA) has a protective role in the developing of cardiovascular diseases (CVD) and coronary heart diseases (CHD). This protective effect is prominent in sedentary workers while it is reduced in those with intermediate levels of occupational physical activity, and it is even reversed in those performing physically demanding working tasks.

Los beneficios de la actividad física deportiva sobre el riesgo cardiovascular se producen únicamente en los trabajadores sedentarios

La actividad física deportiva confiere protección contra la aparición de enfermedad cardiovascular y enfermedad coronaria. Este efecto protector es pronunciado en los trabajadores sedentarios, pero se reduce en los sujetos con niveles intermedios de actividad física ocupacional y desaparece por completo en aquellos que realizan trabajos que demandan esfuerzo físico importante.
