A research team studied the case of the mice that were put in cages contain a “running track”. Some of the mice were running 10 Kilometers per day. After six weeks, the researchers noticed a decrease in the hematopoietic stem cells activity and in the white blood cells level in comparison with the mice that were in cages free of “running track”.
The scientists discovered the role of Leptin in heart diseases among people whose lifestyle is characterized by low mobility and it has become clear to them how the mechanisms of the internal body operate while doing the physical activity.
According to (Nature Medicine) magazine, that published the results of the scientific study, practicing the exercises regularly protects heart and blood vessels and reduces the risk of high cholesterol level and hypertension. However, there is another danger that relates to chronic inflammation, which is the appearance of the atherosclerotic plaques that grow and cause the clogging of the arteries.
Besides, it became clear to the experts of Massachusetts Hospital in Boston in the United States from the experiments they made on the laboratory rates that the physical activity affects the process of blood formation in the body. It is known that blood formation among the vertebrates takes place in the bone marrow where the stem cells generate and grow later into different kinds of blood cells including white blood ones that cause the inflammation. A research team studied the case of the mice that were put in cages contain a “running track”.
Some of the mice were running 10 Kilometers per day. After six weeks, the researchers noticed the decrease/ a decline in of the hematopoietic stem cells activity and in the level of the white blood cells in comparison with the mice that were in cages free of “running track”.
According to the researchers, this reduction is due to the low production of the mice that were physically active, for the protein of Leptin that is responsible for regulating energy exchange. This Protein forms in adipose tissue, curbs the appetite, and protects from obesity.
