There is a growing body of literature that recognizes the importance of the beneficial effect of regular exercise based on advances in research at the molecular, cellular, and whole-body levels. Exercise is one of the very prospective therapeutics for disease, contributing to the inhibition of epidemic and pathogenic diseases, including hypertension, diabetes, cancer, aging, brain disorder, cardiovascular disease, and hepatic-related diseases, around the world. However, physical inactivity and unbalanced dietary patterns result in increased exposure to a variety of diseases and weaknesses in exercise capacity, ultimately resulting in mortality. To prevent diseases and promote healthy lifestyle conditions, the World Health Organization recommends increased physical activity level, aerobic exercise, and/or resistance exercise, and a combination of aerobic exercise and resistance exercise, in the 21st century. Therefore, the aim of this Special Issue is to collect novel findings in the field of exercise medicine in health and disease.
The Special Issue cordially invites scientist involved in basic research as well as in translational studies to submit their original researches.
