A human health risk factor translates as something that increases a person’s chance for developing a disease. Disease can also be looked at dis-ease or stress. Stress occurs as a result of changes in your daily routine. It causes chemical changes in the brain and can have a direct affect on your health.
Consider when you experience times of great happiness in your life. You may feel energetic, active yet calm. The chances are you are producing high levels of the hormones Serotonin and Melatonin. Melatonin acts as an anti-oxidant, mopping up harmful chemicals, also known as free radicals, which can be found in our blood; and it protects essential fatty-acids which make up parts of cells of the brain and nervous system, for example. Melatonin is also involved in the production of cells of the immune system, enabling you to fight infection as soon as you are at risk. So clearly if you feel good, your body produces hormones which lead to physical health and well-being.
If you have low levels of serotonin (serotonin production is lowered as insulin levels rise – often as result of high levels of carbohydrate intake – this can be linked back to healthy nutritional balance) you may suffer from feeling depressed, irritable and even experience periods of insomnia.
People who are usually inactive can improve their health and well-being by becoming even moderately active on a regular basis. Also, physical activity need not be strenuous to achieve health benefits. It is important to also remember that greater health benefits can be achieved by increasing the amount (duration, frequency, or intensity) of physical activity.
Regular physical activity that is performed on most days of the week reduces the risk of developing or dying from some of the leading causes of illness and death.
