The incredible benefits of exercise

Exercise isn't just about looking good (although that's a nice bonus!). It's a powerful tool for transforming your entire well-being - from your physical to your mental health. Incorporating some movement into your routine can yield amazing benefits. Physical health: · Protection against diseases: Regular exercise reduces your risk of chronic conditions like heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, and some cancers. It strengthens your heart, improves circulation, and keeps blood sugar levels in check. · Weight management: Exercise burns calories, and helps build muscle, which helps in boosting your metabolism and maintaining a healthy BMI. · Bone health: Exercise strengthens your bones and muscles, improving your balance, stability, and flexibility. This reduces your risk of falls and injuries, especially as you age. Mental Well-being: · Mood booster: Feeling stressed or anxious? Exercise releases endorphins, the body's natural feel-good chemicals, leaving you feeling happier and more relaxed. Regular exercising can also combat symptoms of depression and anxiety. · Better focus: Physical activity improves cognitive function. It boosts memory, learning, and concentration, helping you to stay mentally agile as you age. · Improved sleep: Exercise can be a natural sleep aid. Regular physical activity promotes better sleep. · Social connection: Exercise doesn't have to be a solo act! Join a group fitness class, find a workout buddy, or explore outdoor activities with friends. It's a great way to connect with others and boost your social wellbeing. Age-wise wisdom: • Kids, Teens (5-17): Aim for 60 minutes of active play every day, including muscle and bone-strengthening activities 3 times a week. • Adults (18-64): Hit 150 minutes of moderate exercise or 75 minutes of vigorous activity weekly, with muscle-strengthening activities on 2 or more days. • Seniors (65+): Clock in 150 minutes of moderate exercise per week, plus balance and strength training. Remember to listen to your body and pay attention to pain or limitations. Adapt your routine based on your fitness level and health conditions. Additional tips for all ages: · Warm up before and cool down after every workout. · Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water throughout the day. · Choose activities you enjoy and can stick with long-term. · Consult with a doctor before starting any new exercise program, especially if you have any health concerns.

Your immune system works by keeping track of all the substances normally found in your body. Any new substance the immune system does not recognise raises an alarm, causing the immune system to attack it. CAR T-cell therapy (Chimeric antigen receptor T-cell therapy) is a way to get immune cells called T cells (a type of white blood cell) to fight cancer by changing them in the lab so they can find and destroy cancer cells. CAR T-cell therapy is also sometimes talked about as a type of cell-based gene therapy because it involves altering the genes inside T cells to help them attack the cancer. T cells are taken from the patient's blood and modified in the lab, by attaching a specific cancer cell antigen to T cells called a chimeric antigen receptor (CAR). Large numbers of these CAR T cells are grown in the laboratory and are subsequently injected back into the patient by infusion. This type of treatment can be very helpful in treating some types of cancer, even when other treatments are no longer working. CAR T-cell therapy is used to treat certain blood cancers, and it is being studied in the treatment of other types of cancer. Many CAR T-cell therapies (and similar types of treatment) are now being studied in clinical trials, in the hope of treating many types of cancer.
