Jogging reduces obesity and hypertension in obese/SHR.


Young Obese/SHR, genetically destined to become obese were made to run three times daily, averaging 2740 ft/day. Siblings of these young Obese/SHR which were allowed to remain sedentary, developed voracious appetites, massive obesity, hyperlipidemia, diabetes, hypertension, hyperadrenocorticism, muscle wasting, kidney stones, thin skin, and accelerated aging. The Obese/SHR that exercised did not become obese, their blood lipid, glucose, BUN, blood pressure, and hyperadrenocorticism were reduced, but their testes and ovaries became prematurely atrophic.
