Daily brisk walk could reduce risk of death
Daily brisk walk could reduce risk of death (January 19, 2015 - Insidermedicine) From Cambridge - A new report published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition finds that taking a brisk walk every day could greatly reduce risk of premature death. Researchers reviewed data on over 330,000 men and women taking part in the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition study. Participants were followed for 12 years. Results showed that the greatest reduction in risk of premature death occurred when they compared physically inactive and moderately inactive people. Researchers estimate that a brisk 20 minute walk every day would bump inactive people into being moderately inactive, and reduce their risk of premature death by as much as 30%
