Increased blood flow found associated with healthy blood vesselsA new way has been identified by scientists that can help people stay protected against heart diseases by emphasizing upon exercises.

According to researchers at the University of Pennsylvania’s Institute for Medicine and Engineering, increased blood flow has the ability to mimic the powerful anti-inflammatory actions of specific glucocorticoid steroid drugs.

It was discovered by the researchers that an increase in shear stress, which can be classified as the drag force exerted by blood flowing over endothelial cells that line blood vessels, leads to the same sort of anti-inflammatory events that are normally associated with high doses of steroids.
