EXERCISE: A help or Hindrance to Immune Defense?

Many people who exercise claims that they have fewer infections when they are in good aerobic conditions ,few studies have been conducted that can substantiate or refute this claim.  The bulk of the evidence indicates the moderate exercise may have beneficial effects on the immune system, whereas strenuous exercise may be accompanied by reduced immune -system activity.

Moderate exercise training results in an increase in the circulating numbers of granulocytes and lymphocytes and an increase in cytotoxic and natural killer cell acivity. On the other hand maximal exercise suppresses natural killer cells activity one to two hours after exercise. It is possible that intense physical activity induces the stress response, which in turn suppresses immune functions.

Athletes with long, difficult training schedules and intense competition have increased incident of respiratory infection. Because these athletes have lower resting salivary IgA levels compared with control subjects and that their mucosal immunoglobulins are decreased  after prolonged exhaustive exercise.  These levels return to normal after twenty four hours.

It is possible that the athlete who is in training with frequent bouts of exhaustive exercise may have a sustained reduction in mucosal immununity and therefore lower resistance to respiratory infection.


There are different ways to be fat, and one way is more dangerous than the other. Obese patients can be classified into two categories. Android, a male type of adipose tissue distribution,and gynoid, a female type distribution of adipose tissue measured as the ratio  of waist circumference to hip circumference. Android obesity is characterized by abdominal fat distribution or upper body obesity, where as the gynoid obesity is characterized by fat distribution in hips anad thighs. Females can have android obesity or male can have gynoid obesity.

Android obesity is associated with a number of disorders, including insulin resistance, hypertension, coronary heart disease, and stroke. Gynoid obesity is not associated with high risk for these disorders. Because android obesity is associated with increased risk for the disease, it is more important for the overweight individuals with this type of adipose distribution to reduce their fat stores.

The Food Pyramid and Nutrition for Children by Carl C.

According to the food pyramid, your child should be receiving a big amount of grains since this can be converted into energy for the body. Toddlers should get 3 ounces of this while school age children should eat anywhere from four to seven ounces depending on the age and weight of the child. Grains are found in foods that contain whole wheat such as whole wheat bread, oatmeal, bran etc. The following are all equivalent to one ounce:

* 1 slice of bread or 1 mini bagel
* ½ cup cooked rice, pasta, cereal or oatmeal
* 7 pcs. Round or square crackers
* 1 six-inch tortilla
* 1 four-inch pancake or 2 small pancakes

Vegetables and fruits are needed in the daily diet because of the vitamins and minerals that they provide. These help the body combat diseases and free radicals. Toddlers need to get 2 cups of fruits and vegetables while school aged children need anywhere from1 ½ cups to 3 cups depending on size and age. Here are some examples of measurements equal to 1 cup:

* 2 cups green leafy vegetables = 1 cup raw vegetables
* 2 medium carrots
* 1 large sweet potato
* 1 medium potato
* 1 medium orange, apple, pear or banana
* 8 big strawberries
* 1 watermelon wedge
* 1 large peach

Eat, Fish, beans, poultry and nuts provide your kids with the necessary protein for brain and body development. You can find this in meat and white meat, various types of beans such as kidney, chickpeas, lentils etc. It is also found in nuts such as walnuts, pecans, almond s and others. For toddlers two ounces are needed daily while school aged kids depending on their age and size will need anywhere from 3 to 6 ounces. Here are some examples of one ounce measurements:

* 1 egg
* 1 tbsp. peanut butter
* ¼ cup cooked dry beans
* 12 almonds
* 7 walnut halves
* ¼ of a chicken breast
* ½ of a lean burger
* ½ a small trout

As for dairy products, these include, milk, cheese yogurt and other products that are made from these things such as pudding. This is an important part of the children's diets because it provides calcium, Vitamins D, protein and Vitamin A that is needed for bones and skin development. Toddlers are recommended to take in 2 cups daily while school aged children will need anywhere from 2 to 3 cups depending on how old they are and what they weigh. The following are some examples of dairy equivalents in cups

* 8 fluid ounces = 1 cup (whether for milk or yogurt)
* 2/3 cups shredded cheese
* 3 scoops ice cream
* 3 slices processed cheese

Trying to master the equivalent portion sizes can be quite tasking at the beginning; but the more that you incorporate this in your daily meals and the more that you practice healthy eating habits then the more natural things like these become for you and you children.
