Professor Melitta Mcnarry of Swansea University has recently published a meta-analysis on the health and mortality (all-cause, cardiovascular disease, and cancer) consequences of an elite sporting career. Here, she discusses the findings and the potential implications.     

 

IN THIS EPISODE YOU'LL LEARN ABOUT:

-Reasons for conducting the meta-analysis, including questions marks around whether a high amount of exercise might be detrimental rather than beneficial for health and longevity

-The significantly reduced mortality in elite athletes, in particular endurance athletes and team sport athletes

-Potential reasons for the reduced mortality

-The relationship between cardiorespiratory fitness and protection against cardiovascular disease

-Potential reasons for why elite endurance athletes had greatly reduced cardiovascular disease mortality, but no difference compared to the general population for cancer mortality
