You do not have to be an expert diver to enjoy the Liveaboard Diving Thailand adventure trip. You can sit and relax on the boat while your companions dive in the waters. However, you will miss the fun of exploring the amazing beauty of the underwater world. Nonetheless, it is still a dream vacation and an exciting adventure.
Divers usually have to go through rigorous training before screening to determine fitness. After that, they gain a certification for life; notwithstanding the fact that when they grow older, they should no longer be in the water. According to the huge data bank of the United States, out of 736 million people, 113,892 are into scuba diving.
About one third of the divers are 50 years and older. They are already at risk of underwater heart attack. At least 54% have smoked cigarettes compared to 46% of non-divers. Almost half of the divers (48%) are overweight compared to 43% among non-divers. A third was diagnosed as having high blood pressure and high cholesterol.
It is not common for new divers to suffer from any kind of illness because they have been recently screened. According to Dr Peter Buzzacott of the University of Western Australia, divers who have learned the sport during their younger years are now old and overweight. With high blood pressure and high cholesterol, the risks of dying underwater are very high.
According to researchers, older divers have not yet realized that they are no longer fit to dive. Figures show that between 1989 and 2015, the proportions of diving deaths worldwide that involve divers who are 50 to 59 years old have steadily increased from 15% to 35%. Over 60-year old fatalities increased from 5% to 20%. After drowning, the leading causes of deaths are heart attacks and strokes. It is important to stay in shape before diving.
