Out of my curiosity..how does that effect strong gravity on humans on other planets? Could we possible to survive on other planets with strong gravity or not?

I could see tons of potential physiological damages which can result from stronger gravity. We have already have a large knowledge base of physiological damages resulting from experiencing micro-gravity. Skylab was the first to provide extensive data on that subject. I am sure the physiological deterioration resulting from stronger gravity will just as broad and extensive as it is for low gravity.
