Female Hot Flashes - Fit of emotions? Floorball?


Well this is science now

Let us quote Mr. Nyberg:
"Michael Nyberg, a post-doctoral researcher at the University of Copenhagen, said when women enter menopause, their estrogen levels taper putting them at risk of cardiovascular disease.
Team sports can make up for women's estrogen loss as it improves their conditions, reduces blood pressure and thereby protects the cardiovascular system, Nyberg said.
Thirteen pre-menopausal women ages 45 to 55 took part in the study, as well as 10 recently post-menopausal women. All of the women were tested before and after the 12-week training period, during which they played floorball twice a week."

This was just published in The American Journal of Physiology

And - still America does not seem to grasp how much they need a modern sport like Floorball?
Get real baby and get into real plastics - not only for kids - just so you know...

Caution

Research suggest that eye-injuries are more common in Floorball as compared to Tennis, but less common as compared to Squash (similar to Racquetball).
To minimize this risk of injury Floorballcentral recommend: Use certified protective eye-wear (mandated in many European areas for the youth). Do not lay down on the court. Follow the rules strict on stick height.

Also if you get addicted to this sport - do not blame us!
