After using a ROM exercise machine for a year, I am understanding better the importance of blood flow in capillaries. Most aerobic exercise is of long duration and strengthens certain muscle groups. This increases blood flow in the exercised muscles and reduces blood flow in the rest of the body.
Reducing capillary blood flow in cells through overtraining specific muscle groups has many side effects. One of the most interesting to me is the use of the 4-hit model of carcinogenesis in the diagram above. Dr. John Bailar and I wrote the first paper in 1980 that documented this as the standard model of cancer. Reducing capillary blood flow lowers the number of white cells flowing in and around cells and increased the risk of cancer (among other things.
A review of the literature on plasma circulation on the ROM site is useful. If you are interesting a ROM machine, contact the Frequency Research Foundation at [email protected].
