While people think that exercising is healthy, President Trump stands out and disagreed. He believes that exercising will kill us faster.
“Other than golf, he considers exercise misguided, arguing that a person, like a battery, is born with a finite amount of energy,” Evan Osnos wrote in a story about Trump
Comments About Exercise
“Human body as non-rechargeable battery” is the theory of Trump which was first elaborated in a book by Michael Kranish and Marc Fisher in 2016, Trump said:
“After college, after Trump mostly gave up his personal athletic interests, he came to view time spent playing sports as time wasted. Trump believed the human body was like a battery, with a finite amount of energy, which exercise only depleted. So he didn’t work out. When he learned that John O’Donnell, one of his top casino executives, was training for an Ironman triathlon, he admonished him, “You are going to die young because of this.”
During his campaign, Trump never exercised or broke a sweat. The President believes that exercising will harm our bodies.
‘‘All my friends who work out all the time, they’re going for knee replacements, hip replacements, they’re a disaster,’’ Trump stated.
Even though many people may not agree with Trump, however some doctors in the Victorian era did.
During this era, people were afraid that exercising may cause tiredness and heart palpitations.
On the other hand, nowadays’ doctors believe that physical activity is both a miracle and a cure and is good for the body.
According to a report written in 2015 in the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges, regular exercising can “prevent dementia, type 2 diabetes, some cancers, depression, heart disease and other common serious conditions, reducing the risk of each by at least 30%. This is better than many drugs.”
