(NaturalNews) Pharmaceutical advertisements have bombarded radio, magazine and television in the last decade like never before. Eyes and ears absorbing the propaganda send the messages to the brain, storing thoughts that could eventually turn into misleading beliefs.

These pharmaceutical ads paint a clear picture, instilling an idea that is easily adopted and believed. These ads can make people believe that their health problems are not connected, making them believe that each issue is a separate symptom needing a specific prescription drug. These ads inundate the mind with the idea that health problems are caused by a deficiency of a pill and can only be solved with the corresponding prescription.

Pharmaceutical propaganda disregards the power of exercise for treating both heart disease and depression

Inundated with pharmaceutical propaganda, people find themselves running more readily to the doctor as they look to a prescription for answers. Two prescriptions common today are unnecessary in virtually all cases, but they are prescribed anyway. These are high blood pressure medications and antidepressant medications.

There are over 144 million blood pressure prescriptions each year now in the U.S. Data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Surveys from 2005-2008 showed that 11 percent of Americans aged 12 years and over now take antidepressant medications.

There is one natural way to eliminate dependence on both of these pills, along with several others pills, and that is the daily practice of exercise. Running has been clinically proven to alleviate the symptoms of the depressed, because it releases endorphins, which create feelings of happiness and euphoria.

Run 7 minutes a day, throw the pills away, and still cut heart disease risk in half

In a new study from Iowa University, the University of South Carolina and the Pennington Biomedical Research Center in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, researchers examined the benefit that running had on slashing heart disease risk. They looked at the lives of 55,137 adults between ages 18 and 100.

What they found is an encouragement to anyone of any age, suffering from any sort of circulatory problem. Runners had a 30 percent lower risk of death across the board. Even better, daily runners had a 45 percent lower risk of death from heart disease and stroke.

The most remarkable aspect of the study was the average running time needed to obtain the positive results; heart disease risk was nearly cut in half for runners who ran just seven minutes a day!

Exercising doesn't have to be time-consuming each day. Just 420 seconds of running can make all the difference in one's quality of life, allowing them to be free of mind from needing blood pressure medications and antidepressant prescriptions.

Runners live three years longer; consistent running halves heart disease risk

The researchers also proved that regular runners lived three years longer on average than non-runners.

The participants in the study were followed over a period of 15 years. Approximately 3,000 of the participants died during that time. Over a third of the deaths (1,217) were related to heart disease and stroke.

Fewer than 25 percent of the participants were daily runners. This group ran for less than 51 minutes per week, or just seven minutes a day, and ultimately had a 30 percent lower risk of death from all causes.

It didn't matter if participants ran 51 minutes or 3 hours per week. Risk of death was reduced at the same rate, regardless. This is hope for anyone who thinks that there isn't enough time to exercise each day.

Just seven minutes a day did the trick.

The greatest benefit was seen in runners who ran regularly for six years in a row. They effectively reduced their risk of death from heart disease or stroke by 50 percent!
