Running and Your Health

Running has beneficial effects on lipoproteins levels, improves blood pressure and diabetes control and may even prevent type 2 diabetes. It clearly helps increase bone density, may decrease the risk of dementia and/or cognitive decline, reduces stress, anxiety, and depression, and helps prevent and treat obesity. It has some risks but doesn’t cost much. So why don’t more people run? Learn more about the effect running has on your health with Line One host Dr. Thad Woodard and guests.
