ContributedSeptember 18, 2013 2,002 views 2 comments
A group of Polish professors and students from the University School of Physical Education in Wroclaw, Poland, visited Texas Aug. 30 to Sept. 12 to conduct a medical study concerning the condition of the human body among people ages 60-75, and then compare that group with a similar group in Poland. The study was conducted in two groups.
The first group was selected from among the people of Silesian-Polish descent, and the second was from among the other ethnic groups now living in Texas. The study was prepared in cooperation with the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio and with the help of the Father Leopold Moczygemba Foundation.
The testing took place in Floresville and San Antonio with 93 participants. The non-invasive tests measured the different parameters of the human body, which included breathing capabilities and blood pressure tests.
After evaluations are completed, the study will be published in university papers and the results will be sent to the participants.
