爬樓梯健身 不如走路更健康

 國內外都有登高大賽,衛生署也曾提倡過新生活爬梯運動,但爬高層樓梯引發猝死事件經常可見,並且醫學最新倡導,爬樓梯運動健身不如多走平地。爬樓梯運動有正、負面功效,爬樓梯健身前要先有健康概念。

 爬樓梯也可算是一種運動,有諸多健康功效,如減重、增強心肺功能、增加肌肉適能、有益骨質密度及促進新陳代謝等,爬樓梯10分鐘可消耗250卡熱量。但若因而倡導全民爬樓梯,則不合乎健康,因為爬樓梯時,膝蓋必須承受體重三至四倍的重量,長期爬樓梯容易造成膝關節發炎、退化引發十字韌帶撕裂,如果是 O型腿、膝蓋骨外翻、膝關節退化的人,則不宜作爬樓梯運動;並且肥胖的人、心肺功能不佳的人及超過50歲的人均不宜作爬樓梯運動。

 雖然爬樓梯運動有潛在的健康風險,但仍是不需花錢、無環境與時間限制的運動,只要身體無恙,仍是個方便的健身方法 ,但樓梯的安全要注意,並且不宜一次爬太多層、採循序漸進增加爬的樓...

高溫油炸後的食品含有一定的致癌物,這是大家皆知的健康知識,但是對於“油炸食品越薄脆越有害”卻認識不多,以下的健康新知你不能不知。

 為何油炸食物越薄脆健康風險越高?

 美國FDA最新研究,澱粉經過高溫油炸,會釋放出一種可能的致癌物質──丙烯醯胺(acrylamide),包括麵包、蕃薯、芋頭、馬鈴薯等;以炸薯條為例,油炸15分鐘會出現丙烯醯胺,45分鐘後,含量會高達120倍。如果食物越薄,在油炸時所接受的溫度就越高,所產生的丙烯醯胺就越多,這是因為水份量低和表面積相對較大,所以含量特別高。例如炸油條和炸薯條、炸洋芋片相比,通常在製作過程中都會加熱到120℃以上,這時就會產生丙烯醯胺。所不同的是,炸油條加熱時油溫超過180℃就可以了;但更薄更脆的炸薯條、洋芋片等,油溫需要超過200℃,因此會產生的丙烯醯胺就更多,並且薄脆的洋芋片所含的丙烯醯胺比薯條高出10倍。

 若人體長期食用含高量丙烯醯胺的食...

Please also subscribe to our mailing list to keep abreast of the newest developments. Can I claim from medical aid/insurance? Century Medica is a registered healthcare provider and all the services are on a self-pay basis. While we do not work with any medical aid at this moment in direct payment, receipts from Century Medica are valid healthcare receipts. Please check with your medical aid/insurance regarding reimbursement.  Can you prescribe antibiotics? Antibiotic use is regulated as overuse can contribute to resistance of bacteria in the person who has consumed the antibiotic inappropriately. Antibiotic resistance is a serious problem as there will be very few treatment options that can be used to treat infection in that particular individual. At Century Medica, all our doctors are professionally trained in the appropriate use of antibiotics, which is why we will not put you at risk by prescribing antibiotics to you without having the opportunity of a clinical examination. Should our doctors feel that antibiotic is warranted in your case, we can prescribe or will refer you to appropriate providers if you require further physical workup. What kind of medication can you not prescribe? 1. Any medicines classed as controlled or restricted drugs/substances under the MEDICINES AND RELATED SUBSTANCES ACT 101 OF 1965 and all its’ amendments; 2. Unlicensed medications; 3. Sedatives or sleeping tablets; 4. Strong analgesics; 5. Medications that need to be initiated by a hospital specialist. We are, however, able to refer you to see a relevant specialist with a medical referral (we charge for referral letters, see our Costs).  What if my consultation lasts longer than 10 minutes? In our experience, 10 minutes is quite sufficient for most people. Should you require a longer chat, no problem, let us know towards the end of your session to book a follow up session. Booking instructions and payment will be emailed to you for confirmation and we will call you back at the earliest available opportunity. Unfortunately in-session extensions will not be possible as the appointments are pre-booked and there may be another person waiting to chat with the doctor. Your doctor may, at his/her sole discretion, decide to extend your session when conditions permit as a courtesy. Can you send my medication to me? No. At this moment, we do not offer this service. Be sure to subscribe to our mailing list so that we can keep you updated of new developments. We can, however, advise you on the medication you can purchase at pharmacies nearby or send a prescription to you (see cost). Is this service available even when I am outside of South Africa? Yes! You can request for a call back and chat with our doctors worldwide. Please make sure that you provide a mobile number/ landline or Skype account when booking so that we can connect with you better. We will also be able to call you on your mobile if the number is based in the following countries: Both landlines and mobiles in Canada, China, Guam, Hong Kong SAR, Puerto Rico, Singapore, South Africa, Thailand and United States. Only landlines in Andorra, Argentina, Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Brunei, Bulgaria, Chile, Colombia (excluding rural areas - LEX), Costa Rica, Croatia, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Guadeloupe, Hungary, Iceland, Indonesia (Jakarta only), Republic of Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Korea, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Malta, Mexico, Morocco, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Panama, Paraguay, Peru, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, Turkey, United Kingdom, and Venezuela.  Which languages are available?English and Mandarin. For Mandarin service, please book in the Mandarin section of our website. Can I send photos/files/medical reports to the doctor before the chat? Yes! Please email our doctor directly at: doctor@centurymedica.com. Make sure that you include in the email your login email, name and consult time before your session so that we have all the information to assist you with.  Photographs should be taken in good light, must be well focused and preferably with another item next to the object for scale (e.g. ruler, coin, finger, common object of a fixed size). You can also scan your medical reports/test results to email to us. Your medical information will be stored securely compliant with HIPPA( see below). Is my information secure? Yes! Your information is stored with the highest level of security that is HIPPA compliant (HIPAA (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996) is United States legislation that provides data privacy and security provisions for safeguarding medical information). Can I book a session for someone else? Yes! For children under the age of 18, you will have to be present the whole time. For persons over the age of 18, they will have to have their own account for privacy and confidentiality as we store medical information using the email as the identifier.  Can I open multiple accounts? To provide you with the best service that is tailor-made for you, it is better to use only one account so that we have your complete history. You may choose to provide only partial information regarding your condition but this can have a negative impact on the appropriateness and validity of the medical advice you are provided with. We rely solely on the information you provide during the consultation and via email. The responsibility to provide accurate information and the resulting advice rests with you. For detailed terms and conditions please click here. We recommend that you familiarize yourself with our detailed T & C before using the platform.
