Medical science, like any other branch of science, is forever being updated and corrected.

This does not mean easy or light of course (you should always exercise until you are out of breath), but brutal exercise can cause inflammation in the body, leading to numerous health problems, including some cancers. It had often been noted that boxers and football players, in spite of their great strength and exceptional fitness, lived no longer than the average person. It is now thought this may be due to the inflammatory effect of their sport. So stick to swimming, walking, and yoga instead!
