Dancing while singing is good for heart health, not a luxury Dr Kiyingi advises Uganda government to free artists
Uganda is risky of recording high number of heart related diseases due to Covid-19 lock down on county’s artists by the Kampala government.
Ugandan senior cardiologist Dr Aggrey Kiyingi has advised Uganda government to lift a ban on Ugandan musicians and artists arguing that the act of singing and dancing reduces risks of dementia especially in older people.
Australian based specialist cardiologist told Ugandans through radio Munansi (www.radio Munansi.com) that dancing, singing while jumping is not a luxury, but an health issue.
He explained that when the heart doesn’t get the care it needs, serious problems can develop in the lining of the arteries, which then lead to plaque formation.
“Plaque is what leads to heart attacks and blockage of blood flow in the arteries,” Dr Kiyingi warned.
Dr Kiyingi asks president Yoweri Kaguta Museveni and ministry of health to lift a ban on the Music industry due to health concerns to save lives of many Ugandans.
“You can not keep on arresting comedians, torturing and fighting artists, not necessary. Music, dance and singing is very good and important for hearth health, it has never been a luxury,” he said.
According to another medical study done 20 years ago in the United States of America, dancing reduces the risk of dementia in older people.
This is probably so because the music and dance engage human mind and increase blood flow to the brain.
