The handshake of American President Donald Trump is an alien that sticks to one side, until people rule firmly on one another, shaking hands. A strong grip usually expresses confidence or strength, while the limp’s hold sometimes appears to be incompatible or weak.
But recent studies show that the power of control can reveal more than your personality, it can serve as a window to see how healthy you are – or unhealthy – you are. As your age says, your grip strength can be a measure of how likely you are to have diseases such as cancer, heart disease.
A systematic review of 2016 for people who were 60 years of age or older, for many studies, found that there is “legal validity for cognitive impairment, mobility, functional status and mortality.”
Experts say that hand grips act as a back-up to measure the overall strength of the body and the muscles which fall with age. Researchers say that the advantage of measuring the power of fist as a sign of health is that it is affordable and reasonable, and it is important for the rural people and others who do not have access to medical care.
Stuart Gray says, “It is not an ideal measure of the overall muscle strength, but it is a good gauge.” The loss of muscle is associated with many diseases. In early life, the power of control can later be an indicator of disability in life.
At Cardiovascular and Medical Sciences Institute in Glasgow University, Scotland, a lecturer in exercise and metabolic health, which focuses on the loss of muscles associated with age.
In order to measure the power of control, researchers use a simple $ 200 device called Power Meter. Press the subject to reveal the amount of force applied to it. “It takes about five to 10 minutes to train someone to use the device, so this is an easy application,” says Gray.
Gray was one of the co-authors of the study of 2018, which found that hand holding strength was “linked to a wide range of adverse health consequences.”
The study found that low blood pressure and a high rate of cardiovascular disease, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease and the relationship between various types of cancer, such as colorectal cancer, lung cancer and breast cancer.
The study used information of 500,000 people between the age of 40 and 69, which joined the UK’s BioBank, which collects data to investigate other factors affecting genetic, nutrition, environment and health. .
Gray said, “We know that the strength of the lower muscles is linked to high morbidity,” but we believe that its role in health is very little. We wanted to deeply examine this in a large group of people whether it is related to more situations or not. ”
“The strength of the muscles is an indication of your ability to bear the disease,” said Derrell Leung, cardiologist of Hamilton University of Health Sciences and McAmster University’s Institute for Population Health Research.
“When you are strong and sick, you can have a repository to help fight your illness,” he says. “Without muscle strength, your chances are bad.”
Leung says that unconsciousness is often an essential part of aging. In this research, he says, “We challenge this belief because we have noticed many small, weak adults and many old people who do not.”
Liang leads the study of approximately 142,000 people in 17 countries to assess the possibility of heart attack, stroke or death from heart disease.
“Our research has shown that the strength of the lower muscles is linked to death, the first and most important risk,” Leung says. He also found that the strength of the handles was a strong indicator of death by blood pressure.
Leung’s research indicates that every 11-pound (5 kg) reduction in constipation is 16 percent more risk of dying for any reason, 17 percent risk of heart disease death, nine percent of stroke risk, heart attack Seven percent more risk of
Leung says that the findings and observations about weakness which are not particularly related to the age, indicate the need for further research.
“We need to understand the ingredients that lead to successful aging while maintaining strength,” he says. “We hope that a successful approach to maintaining muscular strength will reduce the risk of death and disability.”
While both researchers have added tensile strength as a measure of the strength of the total muscles for the outcome of the disease, they agree that the cause is unclear.
The rest of the question is whether it is due to genetics and other factors or the result of non-existence is fair and active.
“We saw the difference in muscle power between different races,” says Leung. “Is this genetic or is it the reflection of the environment in which you grow up and the food you are eating? We want to know it and help prevent the loss of control power.”Gray assumes that the handle’s strength falls to 50 percent of the lifestyle and 50 percent of heredity.
