Prolonged bouts of exercise are correlated with depressed immune system to pick up opportunistic infections. Moderate exercise whereas elicit beneficial outcomes in both prevention and rehabilitation of many diseases.

Exercise and immunity henceforth, is a correlated mixed-message mechanism and has important potential implications on public health.
