   Cedar Rapids Gazette (Newspaper) - July 7, 1974, Cedar Rapids, Iowa                                 2A  The Cedar Rapids Gazette: Sun., July  1974  The Fitness Craze  Two YM Outings Still Available  Exercise: Is It Necessary or  Not?  Editor's Note: Arthur J. Snider, science editor of the Chicago Daily News and winner of the American Medical Assn. award for medical journalism, was formerly a reporter for The Gazette.  By Arthur J. Snider  (Reprinted from 1974 World Book Year Book)  At dawn and twilight, sweat-suited physical fitness buffs can be seen running for their lives along tree-lined streets and roads, and in parks and playgrounds.  Others grunt through pushups on the bedroom floor, pedal bicycles, suffer the shock of medicine balls smacking into fleshy abdomens, and flail their arms in a desperate effort to redeem years of physical neglect.  (First in a Series.)  The fitness kick is on, as any hospital emergency room can testify. More people are injuring more parts of themselves in more sports than ever before. Pulled calf muscles, puffed ankles, painful tennis elbows, stiff necks, and sore backs and shoulders are increasingly common complaints in almost every’ doctor's waiting room.  “They come into the office, restless for the necessary repairs that will return them to the fray, like so many racing drivers bringing their battered machines in for a pit stop,*’ reports University of  Camp Good Health  Previously reported S 7.163.5?

Nixon.  Bicycling has become an activity bordering on a national craze. The Bicycle Institute of America estimates that 80 million Americans now ride bicycles at least once a year. For the first time since 1807, Americans are purchasing more bicycles than automobiles, arni 60 percent of the bikes are sold to adults.  The President’s Council on Physical Fitness and Sports released a survey in May, 1973, showing that 60 million American adults engage in sports for exercise (as opposed to recreation). More than 18 million ride bicycles, 14 million swim, 14 million do  calisthenics, 7.2 million play tennis, and 6.5 million jog.  Asked why they engaged in these sports, exercisers invariably cited a concern about health. Nearly half explained, “It’s good for my heart” or ‘‘I can breathe better.” and 26 percent said they “felt better.”  Another 26 percent, mostly women, confessed they wanted to lose weight arui flatten their stomachs. Unspoken but implicit was the desire of many to relieve tensions naturally rather than by gulping pills.  Some business and industrial  leaders say exercise is an exhilarating experience in selfdiscipline. Frederick R. Mey-  Mar-  from  5.00  5.00  4.00  -Gazette Photo by Duane Crock  MANY in Cedar Rapids follow regular exercise routines, Dave Diehl, 2741 B avenue NE, runs two miles a day to stay in shape for football which he plays at Northeast Missouri State university. He is running on the Regis high school track.  or. senior vice-president of the Tyler Corp. in Dallas, encourages running on the part of his executives in the belief that it xviii help them bring more self-discipline to the job.  The Zenith Corp. in Chicago gives its executives health club memberships and requires them to work out three times a week on treadmills, bicycles and rowing machines. “We have a lot invested in these men,” explains John Post, the company's medical director. “There is a lot of pressure in business and we want to make sure that when one of them is on the run, he’ll be able to get to the finish line.”  The passion for vim and vigor has not engulfed everyone, however. There are still many who subscribe to the put down attributed to educator Robert M. Hutchins: “Whenever I feel like exercise, I lie down until the feeling passes.”  Nor does every physician advocate exercise as a key to health. Peter Steincrohn, a Florida cardiologist, contends that exercise is necessary only for growing children, young adults, and those recovering from injury or illness. “Middle-aged nerves and muscles require relaxation, not exercise,” he advises. “R ai sing the pulse rate through exercise is a foolish expenditure of heartbeats.” Others seem to agree. Another skeptic, Frank P. Foster of the Lahev clinic in Boston, says athletics and physi-cal-fitness programs are “in danger of becoming a patriotic enigma wrapped in tradition, misinformation and foggy thinking. Many people who never exercise jive to a ripe old age.”  Even the American Medical Assn. (AMA) says not everyone needs exercise: An active person may require little, if any, additional exercise to maintain fitness.  Nevertheless, mounting evidence tends to support the belief that physical activity prevents, or at least postpones, the onset of heart attacks, which account for 600,000 deaths each year in the U. S. Much data has been gathered by comparing people who work in sedentary jobs with those in more physically active occupations.  The first survey to attract wide attention compared 31,-000 bus drivers and conductors who worked on the doubledeck red buses and trolleys in london. Jeremy N. Morris, a doctor, and his associates found in 1956 that heart attacks caused 30 percent fewer deaths among the conduc  tors, who ran up and down the stairs collecting fares, than among the drivers, who sat at the steering wheel all day.  They later confirmed this data in a similar study on I lo.(KH) sedentary postal clerks and walking mail carriers. In their most recent study of 17,(HK) civil servants, reported in 1973, the British scientists showed that vigorous leisure-time work promoted heart health. The work included digging in a garden, shoveling snow, sawing, cycling, and taking brisk walks of at least 30 minutes on hilly terrain.  A University of Minnesota research team determined in 1962 that the age-adjusted mortality rate for heart disease is 5.7 per 1.000 persons for sedentary railroad clerks, 3.9 for moderately active switchmen, and 2.8 for the section men who perform more hard labor. Similar comparisons in San Francisco showed that heart disease killed about 30 percent fewer longshoremen than office workers.  A study made in Canada showed that business execu tives, lawyers, judges, and physicians had 5.7 times as many coronary deaths as farmers, miners and laborers. And a 1967 Harvard university study of 500 pairs id middle-aged brothers horn iii Ireland also showed that exercise was the most important factor in holding down the incidence of heart disease.  In each ease studied, one brother immigrated to the Boston area while the other remained in Ireland. Those who stayed in Ireland remained in fanning while their Boston brothers became city dwellers, most of them with sedentary’ jobs. The Irish farmers got more exercise, since their farms are not highly mechanized, and most of them still walk or ride bicycles to tow n. Most of the Boston group owned cars and rode to work on public transportation.  (M o ii day: Jogging Away from Heart Attacks.)  Advance registrations can still I combing.
