Jogging for 50 Minutes Once a Week Cuts the Risk of Premature Death

A new study, led by a team of researchers from Victoria University, Australia, suggests that jogging for 50 minutes once a week may reduce the risk of premature death by 27%. It also may reduce the risk of dying from heart disease and cancer by 30% and 23%, respectively.Jogging for 50 Minutes Once a Week Cuts the Risk of Premature Death

For the study, an international team of researchers took data from 14 studies that included 233,149 people in total. Within these studies, they were followed from 5.5 to 35 years, and during the follow-up period, 25,951 participants died.

The researchers conclude in their paper: “Increased rates of participation in running, regardless of its dose would probably lead to substantial improvements in population health and longevity. Any amount of running, even just once a week, is better than no running, but higher doses of running may not necessarily be associated with greater mortality benefits.”
