RUSH: Well, I have say, folks, I was right again. Yet another story about how too much exercise is harmful. I have it here right in my formerly nicotine-stained fingers.
I am Rush Limbaugh, your guiding light, your bulwark here at the Limbaugh Institute for Advanced Conservative Studies, the largest free education institution known to exist in the free or oppressed worlds. There are no graduates, and there are no degrees. The learning at your foundation and institute never stops.
Right here the UK Daily Mail: "Excess Exercise 'Hurts the Heart' and Causes Dangerous Long-Term Harm, Say Scientists -- Extreme exercise such as marathons may permanently damage the heart and trigger rhythm abnormalities, warn researchers.
They say the safe ‘upper limit’ for heart health is a maximum of an hour a day - after which there is little benefit to the individual." And you can get that hour a day in about eight minutes of sex.
"A review of research evidence by US physicians says intensive training schedules and extreme endurance competitions can cause long-term harm to people’s hearts. Activities such as marathons, iron man distance triathlons, and very long distance bicycle races may cause structural changes to the heart and large arteries, leading to lasting injury." This review was published in the Mayo Clinic's medical journal.
Now, as you people know, I play it safe. Whenever I get the urge to exercise, I lie down on the sofa, on the floor, on my back, until the feeling goes away. And I must confess, I don't get the urge much. But when I get the urge, I sit. It's another one of these myths that everybody fell prey to. Now, why is this the case? Because we're all different. That is why. We're all different.
