23. SOUNDBITE: (Russian) Professor Andrei Smolenski, Director, Research Institute for Sport Medicine under Russian State University of Physical Culture, Sports, and Tourism:
"Adaptation of the organism doesn't happen instantly. What happens instantaneously is various stress-related dysfunctions and these can also be triggered by instant exposure to the cold. I understand that, even if today's outside temperature can be minus 20 degrees Centigrade, the water's temperature is still around plus 4 (degrees Centigrade). Nonetheless there is a contrast in temperature and in addition, we cannot be sure that the person doing it is in good health. There are a wide range of common cardio-vascular diseases, even in younger people, in particular ischaemic disease of heart (damaged blood vessels) and serious hyper-tension, that is increased pressure. All this, without doubt, can create negative side effects, including death."

With saunas, if the temperature is 80 degrees (Centigrade) and the air is -30 (degrees Centigrade), the difference is 110 degrees, but without sauna it's smaller, and if you want to swim often, this is really nice in your everyday life."
