A japanese research team recently published a study in the British Medical Journal showed that people who have a daily bath bath habit have a 30 percent lower risk of heart and brain diseases such as stroke and myocardial infarction, according to a report by Japan’s A Current Affair news agency.
This is the Osaka University University College Professor Ishibokang and other research team between 1990 and 2009, followed the study of 30,076 men and women between the ages of 40 and 59 living in Akita, Iwate, Tokyo, Nagano and other places. The survey looked at the frequency of bathing in a bathtub, and divided the interviewees into three groups of “less than 2 times a week”, “three or four times a week” and “basically every day”, and investigated their association between bathing in the bathtub and cardio-brain disease.
Excluding statistical factors such as eating habits, smoking, drinking and exercise, the results showed that people who “bathed in the bathtub almost every day” had a 28 percent lower risk of developing myocardial infarction, stroke, and internal brain bleeding than those who “bathed almost twice a week.”
In particular, the shoulder soaked in the bathtub of the Japanese-style bath, not only has a warm effect, but also has the effect of water pressure to promote the heart to send more blood out to reduce the risk of heart and brain disease. According to reports, after a long epidemiological investigation found that the relationship between bath and cardio-brain disease is the first time. (Compilation: Liu Go proofreading: Chen Jianjun)
