Bacterial Infections

  • Physical Activity Could Lower the Risk of Bacterial Infections
    The risk of viral infections is known to be affected by physical activity, but little information is available regarding the more serious infections caused by bacteria. In this study, the investigators examined the relationship between leisure-time physical activity and ...More
