To Live Longer, Start Running Now, Even Just A Little Bit

Posted by in category: health

It may be possible to out-run death, at least for a little while, according to a recent study.

An international team of researchers analyzed data from 14 previous studies involving a total of 232,149 people who had their health tracked by scientists for at least five years and as long as 35 years. They found that, of the 25,951 individuals who died during this period, those who ran were correlated with a 27 percent lower risk of death than those who didn’t run at all.

The association was found among both men and women and even when a person went for just one slow jog a week or even less.
