Health-Related Quality of Life Depends on Body-O2 Levels
Health-related quality of life includes factors related to sleep, exercise, digestion, and other individual health parameters, abilities and choices. While many people understand that health related quality of life gets worse with development of chronic diseases, very few people can pin-point the key factor that controls this process. Why do modern people have much worse overall health, worse sleep, more problems with digestion, and significantly less fitness than our predecessors living 3-4 generations ago?
While there are dozens of medical studies that found that modern people have greatly reduced results for the body-oxygen test, we can consider the cause of low body oxygenation in modern people since there are studies that measured changes in minute ventilation rates during the previous century:
Abnormally heavy breathing is possible to notice, and it causes and promotes chronic diseases ranging from cancer and diabetes to heart disease and obesity. (Visit the Homepage for medical studies that testify even heavier breathing in people with chronic diseases.)
In addition, chronic overbreathing creates problems with sleep, digestion, ability to exercise and physical health. People with low body O2 generate free radicals, have over-excited brains due to deficiency of all three brain chemicals: O2, CO2 and glucose. Therefore, they will suffer from panic attacks, anxiety, addictions, inconsistent behavior, and other problems.
In short, low body O2 affects each and every aspect of health-related quality of life.
