Makes me wonder if it’s not just the excess endurance exercise that directly contributes to heart issues, but the way in which most competitive endurance athletes eat – ingesting huge amounts of carbs throughout the day. Could this chronic state of insulin spiking be more of a factor in the systemic inflammatory state than the exercise itself? There’s a growing mass of endurance athletes that are moving to low-carb diets.

You make a good point. Though this is only an anecdotal observation, I’ve often seen masters-aged athletes fall into lousy food-choice patterns.

I agree that the inflammation story has many chapters. Exercise surely confers health benefits, but it does not inoculate one from ingestion of inflammation-inducing food.

The table of wellness has four legs: good movement, good food, good rest and good attitude.
