Can Exercise Prevent Ulcers?

Health & Fitness - Monday, July 01, 2013 8:50:27 AM

Although many people are infected with Helicobacter pylori, the bacteria that cause ulcers, few people actually develop ulcers.
Other factors, such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS), stress and smoking, influence the chance of developing an ulcer.
In their search for other lifestyle factors at work, researchers studied the effect of exercise in a survey of more than 11,000 people.
Men who were moderately active — defined as walking or jogging up to 10 miles per week, or equivalent activity — had 46 percent less risk of developing intestinal ulcers than their sedentary counterparts.
Men who were active — defined as walking or jogging more than 10 miles per week — reduced their risk by 62 percent.
This correlation held only for intestinal ulcers, not stomach ulcers, and there was no evidence that exercise protects against ulcers in women.
