A group of scientists from the University of Southern Denmark conducted a study and found that cycling is a good way to prevent the occurrence of type 2 diabetes.
50,000 male and female volunteers aged 50–65 years were invited to participate in this study, and experts found that cycling enthusiasts were less likely to suffer from type 2 diabetes. Scientific work lasted for 5 years, and some of the volunteers had to regularly arrange bike rides. It turns out that cycling reduces the likelihood of type 2 diabetes by 20%.
As you know, type 2 diabetes is an acquired disease. It develops in people against the background of obesity, which occurs due to a diet rich in carbohydrates and a sedentary lifestyle.
Scientists still recommend finding time more often for cycling. And this should be started as early as possible, even before the onset of old age, since reasonable physical activity will help maintain good shape and prevent premature aging of the body.
