Yoga reduces cause of failing eyesight and arthritis

Researchers have discovered a natural way to counter inflammation, which is the cause of many health conditions, such as age-related macular degeneration, heart problems and arthritis. Regular yoga exercises can lower compounds in the blood that lead to inflammation, researchers discovered when they monitored the health of a group of female practitioners. The women who had practised yoga for at least two years had lower levels of inflammation-causing compounds in their blood, and the levels didn't rise when they were put through stressful situations, such as doing mental maths. Although yoga seems to work, the researchers from Ohio State University aren't sure if it's because of the breathing or the movements and stances.
