The Laboratory of Cardiovascular Physiology and Physical Activity, Universidade Estadual Paulista (UNESP), Rio Claro held throughout 2012, a research project to assess the impact of physical exercise in middle age. Scientists want to measure the contribution of activities for the prevention of hypertension and cardiac and vascular risk.

Since the beginning of the year, the study recruits volunteers of both sexes, aged between 40 and 60 years. However, the search criteria, may not participate diabetic, obese, smokers and volunteers who are already practicing regular physical activity.

The physical training will be conducted on a treadmill three times a week, lasting forty minutes, during a period of eight weeks. During this period, will be submitted to anthropometric measurements, ie, measuring the weight and waist circumference. Also cardiovascular tests will be done by measuring blood pressure and heart rate and biochemical analyzes, such as blood test, measurement of cholesterol and glucose, among other markers.

The greatest interest is the team of volunteers who have hypertension, but the researchers will receive the same way people who do not have the disease to compose the control group, ie, one that will serve as a basis for comparison.

It is expected that physical training can prevent the development of hypertension, and perhaps even help to treat people who already have the disease, explains the doctoral student Carlos Henrique Grossi Sponton, which coordinates the research alongside Professor Angelina Zanesco. The activities in this population can minimize the risk of cardiovascular and cerebrovascular events such as myocardial infarction and cerebrovascular accident (stroke), respectively, as well as other diseases, he adds.
