Jogging Too Much Will Probably Kill You, Too

Researchers found that people who performed strenuous exercise had higher death rates.

Some Danish scientists performed a study looking at more than 1,000 joggers and non-joggers and found that people who jogged the most had the highest death rates. This study contributes to mounting evidence that the only safe thing left to do is to wait out the rest of your living days staring silently into the void.


The researchers published the findings of the 12-year study in the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, which suggest that an intense jogging regimen is just as bad for your health as not exercising at all. “Light joggers and moderate joggers have lower mortality rates than sedentary nonjoggers, whereas strenuous joggers have a mortality rate that is not statistically different from that of the sedentary group,” they write in an article titled “Dose of Jogging and Long-Term Mortality: The Copenhagen City Heart Study”.

“You don't actually have to do that much to have a good impact on your health. And perhaps you shouldn't actually do too much,” researcher Jacob Louis Marott told the BBC.

My take: Nothing you do will change the fact that we’re all just rotting meat sacks futilely delaying death’s inevitable arrival. Have a cheeseburger while you wait.

Seventy-five years ago, on January 27, 1945, the Soviet Army liberated the Auschwitz concentration camp operated by Nazi Germany in occupied Poland.

Auschwitz was the deadliest of Nazi Germany's 20 concentration camps. From 1940 to 1945 of the 1.3 million prisoners sent to Auschwitz, 1.1 million died. That figure includes 960,000 Jews, 74,000 non-Jewish Poles, 21,000 Roma, 15,000 Soviet prisoners of war, and up to 15,000 other Europeans.

The vast majority of the inmates were murdered in the gas chambers while others died of starvation, disease, exhaustion, and executions.
