Cut Your cardiovascular Disease Risk in just 7 minutes a day!
A joint study from Iowa State University, the University of South Carolina, and Louisiana State University System in the US, and the University of Queensland School of Medicine in Australia recently looked at the health habits of 55,137 adults over the course of 15 years. In essence, they found that:
• runners had a lower risk of death from any cause and death from cardiovascular disease
• running was associated with significant mortality benefits, even at lower doses or slower speeds
• persistent running over time was more strongly associated with a lower risk of death"
"Interestingly, a protective effect was seen regardless of running time, amount, duration, frequency or speed. People who ran just a modest amount – less than 51 minutes a week – also had a reduction in risk."
