The enormous benefits of cycling for individual and global health

Cycling has preventive effects on almost all typical diseases of modern civilization like cardiovascular diseases, metabolic syndrome,bone and joint diseases,osteoporosis, COPD etc. and at the same time it reduces green house gas and therefore reduces health risks for people in developing countries.

 

 

 

In recent years the World Health Organization has confirmed what large Danish and the British investigations on cycling and health have already proofed. So WHO developed a health assesment tool:

Health economic assessment tool for cycling (HEAT for cycling)http://www.euro.who.int/__data/assets/pdf_file/0011/87482/E90948.pdf

 

 

But cycling means even more:

 

From my experiments in mobility, "Integrated Cycling" and ecological combination of various means of transportation I know that there are many ways to reduce greenhouse gas drastically.

You need certain skills and certain creativity to organize your life in a way that enables you to do most of your travelling without using the "climate-killers", namely conventional car and plane.

In my presentations you get  a scienific background on health, climate-change  and sustainable development  as well as  a lot of practical hints from my long-time experience which you can use to improve your personal mobility and health or mobility management  in your community towards a healthier, more sustainable and more climate-friendly way.
